Master of Professional Studies Program, New York City

Rachel Kurtzleben MILR 11The part-time Master of Professional Studies (MPS) Program in New York City offers a unique opportunity for working adults in the New York Metropolitan area to earn a Master's degree from the leading school of industrial and labor relations in the country, taught entirely by full-time faculty from the main Cornell campus.

The MPS was created to meet the needs of professionals currently in the workplace who already have work-based expertise, skills, and knowledge. Prospective students might be working in labor relations, human resources, the labor movement, law, consulting, or the social sciences. The MPS is designed for individuals who have gained practical experience but have not had the opportunity to study the theory and history of industrial and labor relations.
