About

With technological change disrupting the media industries, the Media and Technology Program provides the knowledge and flexibility to effectively navigate the path to success.

We achieve this by bringing together three communities (academic, business and student communities) in a set of interconnected programs and events.

Welcome to the Media and Technology Program at Columbia Business School, a unique program that brings together three related communities: students, businesses and academics. Over the past decade, the program has evolved to become the very best dedicated Media and Technology Program among top tier business schools.

Building on the backgrounds of Jonathan Knee, whose career spans decades in media M&A and Miklos Sarvary, whose academic research has focused on the transformation of the media industries in the last 20 years, we truly represent Columbia Business School’s vision of connecting research to real-world practice for the benefit of learning and education.

Our goal is to give our media and technology-focused students the best of both worlds: constantly evolving curriculum and research along with access to media and technology executives in the capital of the media industry, New York City.
