Graduate Communication Program Alumni

We are very proud of our over 400 alumni who are successfully serving in a variety of corporate, entrepreneurial, non-profit and government positions. 

What Our Alumni Say...
“One of the MASC program's greatest strengths is that it offers a truly multifaceted education. Students gain practical knowledge in fields such as advertising, consulting and market research, while improving skills like writing and public speaking. As a result, students are better prepared for whatever their professional futures may hold."
                             Christine Yzaguirre, MA ’06

“I especially liked the program's emphasis on multiculturalism and diversity. These are major themes in both our professional and personal lives and the MASC program encouraged students to look at the issues from all angles. With the expansion of the global economy, I think that will prove to be a very powerful asset.”
