Columbia Journalism’s Sulzberger Executive Program Offers Four Cabot Fellowships for News Executives working in Latin America and the Caribbean

Columbia Journalism School is accepting applications for four fellowships to the Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program in 2020 from news and media managers in Latin American and the Caribbean. The fellowships, funded by the Maria Moors Cabot Endowment, cover all tuition, fees, airfare, hotel accommodations and most meals during sessions.

The applicants selected for the Cabot fellowships will work on real-world media-specific problems without the strenuous time commitment required by other business programs. Those enrolled in the school's leading executive program will learn design thinking and core business concepts that help determine a project’s feasibility, viability and desirability.

The Sulzberger Executive Program 16-week sessions will take place from January 6-17 and April 20-24, 2020, and are centered on:

·      Leadership & Team Building

·      Skills Assessment & Development

·      Design Thinking Innovation Process

·      Audience & Trends

·      Product & Marketing

·      Business Models & Strategy

·      Managing Through Change

 

Applications for the Cabot Fellowships to the Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program close at 23:59 EST on Monday, November 4, 2019. Winners will be selected by Sulzberger Program directors, and will be notified on Monday, November 18, 2019. 

The Maria Moors Cabot Endowment also funds the oldest international journalism prizes founded in 1938 by Godrey Lowell Cabot as a memorial to his wife. The Cabot Prizes recognize journalists and news organizations with a distinguished body of work that has contributed to Inter­-American understanding.

The Sulzberger Executive Leadership program was founded in 2005 by the sisters of the legendary New York Times publisher, Arthur Ochs (“Punch”) Sulzberger, to honor their brother by investing in a program they hoped would encourage innovation and sustainability in the news business. In collaboration with Columbia Journalism School, they envisioned a program that would focus on solutions and would provide the leaders of the industry with the tools they need for sustained success. The Sulzberger Program launched its first class of Fellows in 2007.
