School of Professional Studies

The School of Professional Studies offers students access to Columbia’s vast intellectual resources and prepares them to assume positions that require adaptive leadership and complex solution building. Its Master’s of Science degrees and other specialized programs attract students and faculty from across the globe and give them a rich understanding of the needs and the challenges facing us today.

Columbia Giving Day offers a unique opportunity to celebrate our support for our school and its growth and ensure that SPS carries on its tradition of excellence.

When Columbians come together, extraordinary things can happen in a day’s time. On October 21, 2015, thousands of individuals from the Columbia University community made an unprecedented impact through Columbia Giving Day. The generosity of these alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends is changing the lives of Columbians who will change the world. Thank you!
