An innovative curriculum is a hallmark of the Columbia Business School experience. By leveraging our thought leadership, New York location, and extensive links to the international business community, Columbia connects theory with practice in truly exceptional ways.
Recent curricular innovations have included the creation of cross-disciplinary areas, or CDAs — opportunities for research, collaboration, and teaching across traditional academic disciplines — and the Program on Social Intelligence, a series of courses and extracurricular activities designed to enhance students’ leadership abilities throughout their careers. The creation and expansion of these initiatives and others would not be possible without the financial support and enthusiastic involvement of our alumni and friends.
