The NYU Advanced Publishing Institute

The NYU Advanced Publishing Institute (NYU API) is an exciting new executive education course designed for mid to senior-level publishing professionals interested in the latest strategies and business practices in book publishing.

Through case studies, problem-solving exercises, and analysis of successful strategies, attendees will deepen their understanding of the industry and come away with innovative ideas and fresh perspectives on today’s workplace.

Areas of exploration include:

  • Rethinking marketing and publicity, including new approaches to book clubs, podcasts, influencers, and more
  • Preparing for the next industry disruption and mastering the art of the pivot
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies that yield meaningful and demonstrable results

  • Best practices for ChatGPT and other forms of AI
