Advisory Programs

Advisory Programs


Take advantage of advisory programs at Columbia Business School and across Columbia University designed to support your entrepreneurial aspirations.

The Entrepreneurial Sounding Board provides opportunities for Columbia MBA students and alumni to meet individually with faculty members and practitioners affiliated with the Lang Center to discuss their entrepreneurial ideas and potential business opportunities. Summer sessions begin in late May through mid August.

The Entrepreneurs in Residence Program provides helpful advice and guidance to our students, faculty or staff from across the Columbia campus who are launching businesses.

Vincent Ponzo '03, Lang Center director, will be available for office hours via COIN this semester (Tues/Thurs 12:30-2:00pm).

Among the first of its kind when it was founded nearly four decades ago, the Executives in Residence Program at Columbia Business School integrates senior executives into the life of the School. Current executives in residence include experts in areas ranging from media and investment banking to private equity and management, drawn from such companies as Goldman Sachs and McKinsey.

Across Campus:
Entrepreneurs at Athena at Barnard College holds monthly office hours in support of all Columbia student entrepreneurs.

Columbia Entrepreneurship offers office hours to current Columbia students or faculty members. Entrepreneur Office Hours is one of the best ways to initiate your engagement with the broader Columbia Entrepreneurship community.

Throughout the academic school year Columbia Entrepreneurship  also offers office hours for the benefit of Columbia student and alumni entrepreneurs.
