From 1997 to 2016, Diamond held roles in strategy and planning at Time Warner Cable and Time Warner, rising through the ranks to become acting chief marketing officer. Prior to his tenure at Time Warner, he served as an associate in the media and entertainment practice for Booz Allen & Hamilton—in London and in New York.

Diamond also has taught at Baruch College (CUNY), Yale University, Columbia University, and Fairfield University.

“We are delighted to have such a highly regarded marketing professional as Michael heading these academic programs,” asserted Dr. Martin Ihrig, the associate dean of the NYUSPS Division of Programs in Business. “I look forward to working closely with him in developing graduate-level programs that will serve to address the changing dynamics of the marketing and public relations fields.”

Diamond will lead two masters degree programs—the MS in Integrated Marketing and the MS in Public Relations and Corporate Communication—and will be responsible for the management and development of the academic curricula; hiring, oversight, and ongoing communication with faculty and staff members; management of student services and concerns; alumni relations; and cultivating industry partnerships. He also will be in charge of all noncredit programming for Marketing and Public Relations and Corporate Communications.  

Diamond earned an MBA from the London School of Business in 1995; an MFA from Yale University’s School of Drama in 1990; and a BA in English language and literature from St. John’s College at Oxford University in 1987.
