Visiting Scholars

The Chazen Visiting Scholar Program at Columbia Business School provides international scholars, doctoral candidates, faculty members, and business practitioners with the opportunity to take advantage of Columbia’s resources to further their independent research and scholarship. A visiting scholar appointment is a non-stipendiary position lasting a period of between three months and one year, which grants the scholar library access and borrowing privileges, a temporary Columbia University ID and email address, and the option to audit up to three open courses per semester.

Visiting scholars must be sponsored by a faculty member at the Business School, who will serve as the scholar’s academic adviser and provide guidance on the progress of the visiting scholar’s research. The faculty adviser should specialize in the same area as the prospective visiting scholar.
