Since our founding in 1916, Columbia Business School has been dedicated to teaching women the tools needed to be successful in business. Over the years, the School has led the field in percentage of female students, which in 2013 was over 35 percent.
With more women in increasingly higher positions, the value of the Columbia Business School alumnae network only grows. Columbia Women in Business (CWIB) remains one of the strongest clubs on campus and hosts an annual sold-out conference focused on strengthening the role of women in business today.
Alumni Relations launched a Women’s Week initiative in 2012 which will become an annual, global celebration of women in business in partnership with the School’s 75 alumni clubs around the world. The office also hosts an annual Alumnae Reception. To find out more about alumnae activities and ways to get involved, please contact Janet Rossbach, executive director of alumni relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
