Lang Scholars Program

About The Program

The Lang Scholars Program is a three-credit independent study organized and overseen by the Lang Center Director Vince Ponzo. The Lang Scholars program pairs a certain number of Columbia Business School students with an equal number of screened early stage startups. This year, the Lang Scholars Program will partner with Techstars in NYC to pair one second year MBA student with each of their incoming Fall 2015 cohort teams.

Who Should Apply

The most driven and committed, entrepreneurially-focused second-year students interested in working at a startup after graduating from Columbia Business School. The goal of the program is to provide students with a hands-on educational experience building a startup. Thus, technical teams will be expecting a high level of effort and output from their Lang Scholars. If you have the drive and desire to be an entrepreneur and would like to see first hand what it takes to bring a company to the next level, this is the program for you.
