The Master of Science in Leadership consists of a residential executive education program, coursework, and a writing project. Typically, the first phase of study is the Columbia Senior Executive Program (CSEP), a top-ranked executive education program offering a 26-day journey of intellectual, personal, and professional discovery, transformation, and growth for senior executives. Students have the option of completing their six MBA courses before or after CSEP. The writing project, which is a short thesis, follows these two components.
Admission dates to this program are flexible, as required courses are offered every semester and CSEP takes place in the spring and fall each year. Coursework can be done by attending classes offered to Executive MBA students every other Friday and Saturday, and therefore it is feasible to complete the program without living in New York for those who are willing to travel to New York every second week. Additionally, block weeks, which occur occasionally in Hong Kong, London, or New York, can apply towards the degree, as can courses in the Full-Time MBA Program.
