Advanced Content Gives Update for Joint Venture Partner VStarr Business Model Study

IPFW MBA Students Experience Real World in Class

LIMA, OH--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Advanced Content Services, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ADCS) - Besides a degree, most students in MBA programs are seeking hands-on experience. That way, when they get that dream-job, they will have already faced real world business situations. That's the aim of the capstone strategy class taught by Assistant Professor William Todorovic in Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne's (IPFW) Doermer School of Business and Management Sciences.

"This class gives students a real hands-on opportunity to put what they've learned in the MBA program to practical use. The students do an in-depth study with an actual company and are evaluated not only by those companies, but also by local established entrepreneurs," said Todorovic about the recently completed spring class. In that class, 24 students worked with four clients and two intellectual property (IP) projects from Purdue University. The clients included VStarr, Master Spa, Frontline, and Eletri-tec.

Christopher McKenna of VStarr said the team that worked on his company put together a marketing plan. "These students were great; they knew exactly what they were doing. We're taking a close look at the plan they put together and realize we've already benefited from the students' input. I'd definitely recommend that other development stage businesses take advantage of this opportunity."

Todorovic said the student teams also enjoyed working on the IP projects, which received excellent reviews from Purdue University. Bio-vision IP was featured at a competition in Boston and Immersive was featured in another one in San Francisco.
