New York City’s College for the Common Good

At Glasgow Caledonian New York College (GCNYC), we believe innovative business leaders are the vanguard of the Common Good. Our Master of Science degrees explore social impact and sustainability, alongside opportunities to conduct applied industry research in business, risk management and fashion. Offered through evening courses on-campus or online, our master’s programs focus on driving sustainability-related innovation to accelerate systemic change.

Academics & Applied Research

GCNYC delivers unique Master of Science degrees which can be completed in one year full-time or 16 months part-time. Our sustainability-centered programs include Business for Social Impact and Sustainability, Sustainable Fashion and Risk, Resilience and Integrity Management. Courses are offered at our campus located in the heart of SoHo in downtown Manhattan, as well as online for students in most states. 

Our social impact focus is inspired by the leading-edge systems thinking found in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. GCNYC students write an applied research thesis during their master’s program examining sustainability’s potential to incite profitable innovation. 

In addition, the College delivers non-degree professional development courses in sustainability and social impact, which can be completed in 12 weeks as a for-credit course or in 6 weeks as a non-credit course. We have also created bespoke professional development for corporations.
