Columbia Journalism School accepting applications for Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program

The Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program at Columbia Journalism School trains leaders of the world’s most respected news organizations to lead innovation and solve strategic business challenges in a time of rapid transformation, uncertainty, and opportunity. Fellows use the 21-week program to launch, accelerate, and implement a real-world project that is critical to the mission of their organizations and integrated into their day-to-day work. 

The program begins with a two-week intensive at the Columbia Journalism School campus in New York City, where fellows form a tight-knit cohort through an immersive venture design bootcamp that serves as the framework for their projects, and then dive deeper into executive MBA-level topics led by experts from across Columbia University and industry. Fellows then return to their organizations to immediately implement what they learned through topic-focused design sprints.

For the next 18 weeks, they are supported through a weekly virtual cohort meeting that rotates between project feedback and intimate conversations with industry speakers, complemented by individual coaching with the Director. The program culminates back at Columbia for a final week-long intensive, including final project presentations.

They are currently working on obtaining scholarships for leaders who have typically been underrepresented in journalism leadership positions.

The 21-week program will begin with a two-week residency on the campus of Columbia Journalism School in New York City May 3-14, 2021 and conclude with one final week of residency, Sept. 20-24, 2021 with weekly virtual cohort sessions in between.  Applications are due by March 1, 2021.
