BIC and City Tech Make it Formal

12/17/2019 Unknown 0 Comments

Since its launch in 2013, BIC has attracted amazingly talented candidates from all over the globe to its MPS degree program in branding and integrated communications at City College. Over the years, some of the brightest stars have come from across the East River at Brooklyn's Communication Design Department at City Tech/CUNY. Professor Douglas Davis, Chair of COMD_CityTech and a founding BIC faculty member, figured -- "Hey! Let's formalize this relationship!"

So this just in: BIC Program Director Nancy R. Tag, Professor Davis and the Provosts of both schools have signed a special CCNY/NYCCT agreement to make sure the relationship stays strong. As part of the agreement, City Tech students will get portfolio advice, on-site visits, and direct info on admission deadlines and open houses. Professor Tag will sit on City Tech's COMD's advisory board.

On Thursday, December 12th, the day of the formalized agreement, BIC visited COMD's new space near the Brooklyn Bridge and interacted with City Tech students as they wrapped up the Fall 2019 semester. City Tech Professor Dan Wong, who helped shepherd the agreement, and BIC Professor Gerardo Blumenkrantz were there to celebrate. We look forward to strengthening our bonds -- and seeing more amazing students after they've received their City Tech BFA in Communication Design (the only degree of its kind in the CUNY system).
