Go Back to Class

As you know, just because you've had a chance to put your degree to use in the field doesn't mean you're done learning. There's always more you can do to develop your skills, improve your on-the-job performance, or take the next step in your career. Luckily, as a Columbia Business School alumnus, you have unique access to further education.

Lifetime E-mail Forwarding

Your lifetime e-mail is a permanent forwarding vehicle that redirects e-mail to your personal or business mailbox and enables alumni to keep in touch with one another as they move and change jobs. A non-Columbia e-mail address is necessary in order to receive and respond to your forwarded e-mail.

University Benefits

As a Columbia Business School graduate you are also part of the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA), a collective of all University alumni. The CAA is another way to strengthen your bond with fellow Columbians of all University schools, worldwide, through online resources, intellectual opportunities, and discounts.

Alumni visiting Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus can stop by the Columbia Alumni Center to catch up on the latest University news, check e-mail, explore alumni benefits, peruse a yearbook, or just have a cup of coffee. The Alumni Center has been designed specifically for alumni use, and includes a lounge, library, seminar room, and courtesy office. It’s an ideal place to meet with fellow Columbians, or to enjoy a quiet moment while visiting campus.
