M.S.- Information and Knowledge Strategy

Format: Online

Program Description:

The M.S. in Information and Knowledge Strategy program is designed to teach the skills necessary for professionals in any industry where the need to create and leverage information and knowledge is a critical leadership requirement. This is a sixteen month integrated program taught in a hybrid in-class and online format, framed by three short residencies on the Columbia University campus in New York City. The required residencies take place Wednesday through Sunday during the first, eighth, and thirteenth months of the program. The residencies offer the opportunity to get to know fellow students, receive individual coaching from faculty, and network with leaders in the field. Each of the three residencies is anchored by a three-point core course requirement. The online component of the program is a highly interactive experience that uses the School of Continuing Education’s innovative distance learning platform. Students and faculty communicate through a unique social networking function in ways that extend and enhance the impact of traditional learning experiences. Courses are flexible by design, and include a combination of live events, asynchronous community-driven activities and self-study.
