The Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF) and the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto have partnered to create an executive education program aimed specifically at senior media managers.
John Macfarlane, editor of The Walrus and chair of the CJF’s board of directors said in a news release:
“No question about it, these are tough times in our industry. And tough times demand senior managers who are creative, strategic and innovative – people who can do more with less. Developing such people has always been a challenge. Until now.”
The Media Management Executive Education Program (MMEEP) is a three-day residential program. It will be held from October 23-25, 2009 at The Bank of Montreal’s Institute for Learning in Toronto. The fee for the 2009 Fall offering is $3,500, which includes tuition, residential fees, all program materials, supplies and most class-day meals. The registration deadline is September 30, 2009.
