Your local alumni club serves as your gateway to connect with the broader alumni network. No matter which program you have graduated from, we hope you will remain an active member of Columbia Business School’s alumni community for years to come.

Young alumni are especially encouraged to stay actively involved with the School, as they can provide current students with invaluable insight on navigating campus life and offer a recent “real world” perspective on the transition from student to alumnus.

Columbia Career Network

The Columbia Career Network is an initiative to strengthen and build upon the School’s extensive global community. It serves as the umbrella identifier for every instance where students will have the opportunity to engage and leverage the Columbia Business School network — including with alumni, faculty members, staff, Executives-in-Residence, and others who are dedicated to the industry and career education of our students.

All alumni will be considered members of the Columbia Career Network and are strongly encouraged to respond to all calls and e-mails from inquiring students, even if just to postpone a brief conversation until it is more convenient.

Columbia Forever Week and Young Alumni Happy Hour

Columbia Forever Week, organized and sponsored by the School’s student-run Alumni Committee, gives alumni the opportunity to return to campus for various events, including Young Alumni Happy Hour, and offers current students early exposure to the alumni network. The Alumni Committee is focused on building community among second-years, easing the transition from active student to active alumnus, and further strengthening the School’s alumni network.

Social Networking with Current Students

Connecting with students provides recent graduates the opportunity to give back to the School by sharing experiences and expertise, which, in return, enhances and strengthens the Columbia Business School network.

If you’d like to make yourself available for current students to contact you with questions about the industry you work in, your career path, or your perspective on how to make the most of the MBA experience, please take a moment to edit your social networking account and switch the default setting so that students are able to contact you.

To change your default settings, please click the account settings link within the Network section of the site.

Throughout the academic year, alumni are invited to attend and/or participate in a number of programs hosted by student clubs, including conferences and panel discussions.
