Publisher's Training Program
In conjunction with our NYU campus in Abu Dhabi, an emerging hub for Middle Eastern publishing—the NYU-SCPS Center for Publishing hosts an executive seminar series that explores the challenges and opportunities arising in emerging publishing markets. The seminar, a public service partnership between NYU-SCPS and KITAB, a joint venture company between the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH) and the Frankfurt Book Fair, provides a forum for managing directors and senior executives in companies that range from small, family-owned businesses to large-scale publishing companies.
The program is tailored to the unique issues facing the publishing industry in the Middle East, including censorship, cross-border distribution, and the relatively small number of bookstores in the region. Topics encompass issues facing the publishing industry worldwide, such as e-readers and tablets, e-books, mobile platforms, social media marketing, and digital strategies for print-only companies.
