College of Innovation and Professional Programs

The College of Innovation and Professional Programs (CIPP) was founded in 2016 to serve students with new innovative opportunities to meet their learning interests and needs. In the fast-paced world of work and life demands, opportunities to access knowledge are invaluable to those who seek to advance their careers or pursue a lifelong dream of continuing their education.

With the guidance and support of the Office for Strategic Innovation, the College is the research incubator and academic development arm of the University. Currently, the College serves over 1,000 students through some of the fastest growing programs at Concordia-Chicago.

CIPP offers certificate, associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs in areas such as technology, management, kinesiology and leadership. Students may study on a part-time or on full-time basis, and have access to all the academic resources they need to succeed in their chosen program.

Whether students study online, face-to-face or in a hybrid mode, they are assured of a strong and dedicated faculty who hold high academic credentials and care about their individual needs and goals. A student-centered focus to teaching and learning is the cornerstone of all CIPP academic programs..
