Excelsior College Launches Innovative New Master’s Programs and Certificates



Excelsior College is responding to the future of work with two new master’s degrees and two certificate programs. The way companies work is changing. From remote or distributive workforces to changing technology to data-driven strategies, companies operate differently than they did even a year ago.

These new degree programs prepare students for new challenges that companies are facing. The Master of Science in Organizational Leadership with an Emphasis in Technology and Data analytics and the Master of Science in Human Resource Management with an Emphasis in Diversity and Technology received New York State Education Department (NYSED) approval this month, and courses are open for the term beginning in August 30, 2021. Both programs are offered fully online and led by industry experts to equip students with real-world strategies that can be put into practice for immediate impact.
