Edinburgh based e-learning company Interactive University (IU) has broken into the African market. IU has signed a deal with the Zambian Institute for Capacity Building (Zicab), a privately managed education and development agency that provides training in both the public and private sector. Zicab will distribute the Heriot-Watt management programme and Stirling University's MBA course. Last year, it signed a deal with Singapore's Nanyang Institute of Management for around £ 6 million, as well as contracts with China's Beijing, Nanjing and Shanghai Universities.
