Innovation

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

Master in Innovation programs are becoming of greater interest to students as employers are seeking creative, qualified, and outside-the-box thinkers. Students will not only gain knowledge of innovation studies and theory, but also how these can apply to the real world.

Earning an online degree from a school can likely lead to a promotion and/or salary raise, or prepare you for a new career. Even if classroom training may be considered more traditional, online education is advantageous in its own right. There is a mixture of degree programs, and individual classes offered through online learning organizations. It is not unheard of for tuition costs for online courses to be lower than that of a conventional school, although this is certainly not reliable of all online programs.

Curriculum 36 points for degree completion Combination of on-campus and online instruction Executive Master’s Schedule* Fall intake only 16 months to complete** Capstone Project * Enrollment in this program does not meet the full-time requirements for an F1 student visa. ** Three on-campus residencies. See program diagram below. The M.S. program in Information and Knowledge Strategy is framed by three residencies in New York City. 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 core course requirements. Activities during the three five day residencies connect directly to the other program components. Therefore, full participation is critical for degree completion. Between each residency students complete classes online through a highly interactive 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. Candidates for the master’s degree are expected to complete the degree requirements within 16 months (four consecutive terms, including summer) with an overall grade point average of 3.0 (B) or better. The 36-point program consists of eight core requirements (three points each), two electives (three points each), and a capstone project (six points). This accelerated program demands a considerable amount of time and energy, including three residency requirements. Each of the residencies is anchored by a core course, a portion of which is completed during the residency and the rest of which is completed online. In addition to class work, each residency features special lectures, seminars, professional workshops, career advisement and coaching sessions, networking events, and more. Required courses outside of the residencies meet online once a week in the evening during the fall and spring terms. Elective courses meet online once a week in the evening during the summer term. Students should allocate a minimum of 10 to 12 hours per week outside of class times during each term for readings, asynchronous online lectures, exercises and other assignments. All courses have scheduled weekly synchronous class meetings delivered on a distance learning platform that supports and fosters a high level of interaction between and among students and faculty. Electives are offered online during the summer using the same model and platform. The capstone projects are launched during the second residency in April and students continue working on their projects throughout the remaining months of the program. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a diploma bearing the name and seal of Columbia University. [-]
