EMBAssador Program

Columbia Business School’s Executive MBA Program retains its strong reputation in the marketplace in large part due to the remarkable students it attracts and admits.

EMBA Profile

"Through the EMBAssador referral program I was contacted by Sid Jackson, who answered some of my initial questions about the application process. Having the contact to the program every step of the way made me feel like it was a two-way process."
–Cary Barbour ’10, IBM Communications

You can help the School increase the size and quality of the EMBA applicant pool by becoming an “EMBAssador.” Nobody knows better than you what it takes to be successful in the program, and that’s why we're asking you to recommend at least one exceptional person to the EMBA program.

Our admissions team will reach out and invite the person to learn more — no obligation, no hard sell. We have had hundreds of referrals in the short time the EMBAssador program has been in effect — and we are proud to say we have current students who can be traced back to an EMBAssador referral.
