3/27/2017 Unknown 0 Comments

On Monday, March 20th, candidates for Fall admissions to the Branding + Integrated Communications (BIC) Master's Program took a tour of the gorgeous City College campus and then gathered in Shepard Hall for cookies, coffee, and an overview of the program from Director Nancy R. Tag who announced exciting news for procrastinators: BIC has extended its admissions deadline to April 15th!!

Immediately following the BIC Open House, Sam Wolf, SVP of Havas PR, gave a presentation on being agile in public relations today. To the delight of our guests, she brought complimentary copies of Marian Salzman's latest book Agile PR. Many of the prospective students stuck around to sit in our Monday evening classes, either Brand Experience taught by Brian Crooks or Leadership, Ethics, and the Law taught by Angela Chitkara.    Sound kinda awesome? Then maybe it's time to take the leap and pursue your dream Master's in BIC at The City College of New York...

If you -- or a colleague -- are searching for a "get your hands dirty" master's degree in branding + integrated communications, let us introduce you to a new kind of graduate program. 

Our 36-credit, portfolio-driven Master's in Branding + Integrated Communications (BIC) let's you research, think, collaborate, create, and feed your curiosity in three interdisciplinary tracks -- 

Management & Planning | Creative | Public Relations

Here's how it works:

Enter curious.

From there, consider some questions: How do brands work in today's constantly evolving landscape? In what ways are emerging technologies shaping our understanding of the world we live in? Is it possible to make new connections and develop ideas in ways that will positively impact the future?

Study. Research. Think. Collaborate. Create. LEVEL UP...

Leave with a Master of Professional Studies and a portfolio. Real proof that you're no longer just curious; you've got advanced credentials.

Awesome, right? BICsters are awesome, too. 

They aren't just multi-talented, multi-cultural, and cross-disciplinary, but most are working professionals. Our classes are all held at night so you can come straight from work -- ask your boss about tuition reimbursement.  

In the four years since BIC launched, our grad students have been named ADCOLOR Future honorees, LAGRANT scholars, and MAIP winners. They won the 2016 Young Ones GOLD Pencil from The One Club. Alums have worked at Droga5, BBDO, SS+K, Cohn & Wolfe, Ketchum, Rabin Martin, VOX, 360i, GREY, DDB, Tribal, TBWA, Ogilvy, Y&R, The New York Times TBrand Studio... 

And imagine this: a BIC MASTER's degree allows you to study (and work) in New York City for a total in-state tuition cost of only $28,000 (more for out-of-state residents).

NOW, no excuses: The application deadline has been extended to April 15th. Click here for graduate admissions and step-by-step instructions on how to apply. For more information on the BIC program, go to BIC's CCNY site
