The Entrepreneurship Program at Columbia
Please note: There is no formal application process to study entrepreneurship at Columbia Business School. Students wishing to concentrate in entrepreneurship should apply to the MBA or EMBA programs.
The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia Business School offers one of the most comprehensive and respected entrepreneurship programs in the world. The program is more than just a tutorial on how to launch new ventures. Instead, it is structured to emphasize two key components of entrepreneurship MBA students may concentrate on.
The first is the process of identifying, valuing, and capturing opportunity. These activities, crucial in any organization, require using business disciplines in a highly integrative way. The second is an emphasis on individual initiative in the context of uncertainty and tight resources.
While these concepts are distinguishing features of entrepreneurial opportunity, virtually all business students will encounter these challenges in some form, whether as entrepreneurs, consultants, financiers, or managers of firms.
