Information Session: School of Professional Studies in San Francisco

Four Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA

The same distinguished Master of Science programs in Applied Analytics, Bioethics, Strategic Communication, and Executive Technology Management that Columbia University offers in New York City are available starting this fall through a combination of instruction in San Francisco and online. We invite you to attend this in-person information session to learn more.

These four master’s programs combine online study with several multi-day blocks of in-person intensive study at the Career Design Lab | San Francisco that features coursework, guest lectures, networking, and extracurricular activities. Students gain access to the School of Professional Studies' extensive Bay Area network of tech executives, entrepreneurs, mentors, and alumni.

Academic Directors from all four programs will be present to discuss their program's experience and learning outcomes, and to answer questions.
