The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship offers journalists the opportunity to enhance their understanding and knowledge of business, economics, finance and technology, as well as gain a strong understanding of the business of journalism itself. Fellows spend two semesters at Columbia Journalism School and take most of their classes at Columbia Business School.
In scope and depth, it is the most comprehensive and rigorous business journalism fellowship in the world. The fellowship is an academic program in which the fellows are enrolled in classes and receive grades for their work. Fellows meet together once a week for a seminar and dinner, and each fellow chooses their own particular set of business and journalism classes. Three academic tracks guide those choices. Two tracks lead to a Certificate in Business and Economics Journalism. The third leads to a Master of Arts in Journalism.
