Sulzberger Executive Leadership Application, 2017
This application is for the Punch Sulzberger Executive Leadership program at the Columbia Journalism School. All applicants should email Executive Director Doug Smith (dks2113@columbia.edu) or Senior Business Advisor Charlie Baum (charlesbaum@outlook.com ) to arrange a phone conversation about your proposed challenge. All applicants must speak with Doug and Charlie before they are accepted. And, it makes most sense to do this prior to applying.
