Strategic Marketing Communications (M.S. Online)

Professional development often feels like the last thing that working marketing and communications staff have the time to do.

The Gabelli School’s M.S. in Strategic Marketing Communications curriculum makes career advancement not only accessible—via an online format—but also worthwhile.

The program incorporates real-world cases and situations that will mirror the business challenges you encounter every day, giving you the space to explore, discuss, and experiment with new approaches in an academic setting.

It’s the perfect lab to workshop, test, and perfect strategies that you can then put to work for your organization—or use to move upward into a new role.

In our curriculum, online coursework comes together with hands-on, applied projects that give you the chance to work in teams with fellow students. Together, and with guidance from our faculty, you will find novel ways to communicate the value of a brand.
