Earn Your M.S. in Communication While Working—New Flexible Formats

Beginning in Fall 2022, the Part-time and Executive Paths in Columbia University’s Strategic Communication master’s program are moving primarily online, making them more accessible to working professionals in New York City and beyond. 

The Executive Path now combines online instruction with two on-campus intensives each semester. This option can be completed in just 16 months and is ideal for experienced professionals working full-time in leadership roles.

The Part-Time Path is also primarily online, with an on-campus intensive at the start of each of the first two semesters. This option, which can be completed in as little as 24 months or up to 36 months, is ideal for mid-career professionals looking for flexibility in their course load.

“The world has changed. Students want greater flexibility and we’re ready to meet the demand. Our new Part-Time and Executive Paths are primarily online, which means working professionals and top talent from outside the New York region have greater opportunity to join our world-class program,” said Program Director Dr. kb2510 [[at]] columbia [[dot]] edu (Kristine Billmyer).

Columbia’s Strategic Communication M.S. program equips students with insights and skills adaptable to the entire marketing and communications field. The program has produced more than 800 alumni to date, holding a range of positions in various organizations, including the United States Secret Service, MuleSoft, JetBlue, and Google. Courses range from data analytics to crisis management and storytelling.
