A new strategic partnership
Hewlett-Packard (HP) and De Montfort University (DMU) have announced a strategic partnering agreement to work collaboratively to design, develop and deliver a series of innovative educational programmes to better connect academia and business, as well as to start research collaboration in cloud, information security, networking and sustainability technologies.
Launched at the House of Commons in front of 150 guests the centrepiece of this innovative agreement between the two organisations is a co-authored, jointly delivered four year BSc Business Information Systems (in association with HP) degree. This degree is expected to begin at DMU in Leicester in September 2012.
The pioneering nature of the collaboration has also led to high praise from the universities and science minister David Willetts who described the partnership as an "excellent initiative".

The world’s largest technology company, HP brings together a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure at the convergence of the cloud and connectivity, creating seamless, secure, context-aware experiences for a connected world.
