The Yale Publishing Course is designed for mid to senior-level professionals from all over the world. Our mission is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to be more effective leaders and advance their careers.
YPC tackles the most important issues facing publishers in this time of ever-accelerating change. The curriculum concentrates on:
The program provides a mixture of overviews of the current and future state of the industry and in-depth explorations of specific topics in editorial content, design, marketing, circulation, advertising, finance, and management. The carefully-selected industry experts and distinguished faculty from the Yale School of Management present real-world business models and case studies from both large and small publishers. Speakers will also be available for smaller group discussions and one-on-one counseling sessions.
Unlike large conferences, this is a course: classes are conducted in a collegial atmosphere in which the active participation of the students is strongly encouraged and ample time is allowed for questions and comments. Removed from their day-to-day routine, participants are given the opportunity to think outside of their particular silos and view the industry in a broader perspective. As comments from past attendees attest, they return home energized, inspired, and better able to lead their companies.

"The Yale Publishing Course is a must for all of those working in the publishing industry. It's a chance to know what's happening in the industry, to have a vision of the future, and to meet important leaders in the industry. For publishers from abroad, who don't have access to this kind of information, it is very important to consider taking this Course."
- Eugenia Debayle, Editor-in-Chief, Bbmundo, Mexico
"It was a week of personal conversations with the movers and shakers in media. The pace is brisk and the days are full, and we all left with new insights and new strategies for moving our companies forward - if we had to bring the presenters to our business as consultants, this would have cost a fortune!"
- C.W. Henderson, CEO and Executive Editor, NewsRx, USA
"The contacts that I made will endure for years to come, and I value the opportunity to network with such a varied group of experienced professionals from all over the world. Thanks Yale!"

"YPC was structured so that a topic in which I am fluent was followed by subjects that I knew little about, which was perfect. The presenters were all generous with their time and wealth of knowledge."
