Columbia Business Fund

The Columbia Business Fund is the driving force behind the School’s ability to innovate and excel in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The unrestricted support received through the fund plays a critical role in maintaining the School’s stature as a global leader in graduate business education.

Seed Capital

The Columbia Business Fund provides seed capital for new programs and initiatives, enabling us to capitalize on opportunities as they arise. The list below contains just a few examples of unrestricted support at work.

Critical Support

The Columbia Business Fund provides critical support for key operating expenses, including:

  • Student financial aid
  • Faculty research
  • Facility maintenance and improvements

Tuition Relief

While more than 74 percent of our operating revenue is generated by tuition and fees, tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Columbia Business School education. Alumni gifts are invaluable in bridging the gap between tuition revenues and the cost of each student's degree.

If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Clapp at or 212-851-4301.
