Lifelong Learning

Your learning doesn’t stop when you earn your degree. We offer a variety of ways to continue engaging with the Northwestern University Medill community by learning new skills and strategies.

Continued courses after graduation

As an alum of the IMC Professional program, you can take up to five Medill IMC courses for free within five years of graduation. Additional coursework for alumni is subject to application and availability. This opportunity provides additional learning for students looking to continue to expand job skills even after graduation. Alumni who started the IMC Professional program in September 2020 or after can take advantage of these courses.

Medill also offers four free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) through Coursera. Course topics are Social Media Marketing, Content Strategy, Sports Marketing and Organizational Leadership.

Alumni events

We regularly host guest speakers, panels and workshops for our alumni. We invite you to attend these events either in-person in Chicago or in cities across the country where we have alumni clubs. In addition to events that feature content related to integrated marketing communications and media, we also host networking and social events for our alumni to get to know one another.
