In a world of endless possibilities and complex situations, there is a lot that can get lost through irrelevant or incomplete communication. Today’s modern leaders and decision makers need to word their statements and decisions based on communication that is timely, strategic and effective. Columbia University’s Master of Science in Strategic Communication is a degree that is designed to respond to the urgent need for strategic perspectives, critical thinking, and exceptional communication skills at all levels of the workplace and across all types of organisations. Taught by distinguished academic faculty and leading practitioners in the field, our offerings provide students with an educational experience that is immediately applicable in the workplace.

More information about Columbia University School of Professional Studies can be found from February 24 to 26 from 10 am to 6 pm at GETEX in Sheikh Rashid Hall, Stand Number P144, Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

My advice is to combine on-the-job experiences with sound academic principles as taught in the Strategic Communication Programme. That formal training on various disciplines and frameworks is invaluable. In addition, it’s an opportunity to learn from top-rated faculty who are also industry experts.
