Bidding Points for Executive Education Programs

As part of Columbia Business School's commitment to lifelong learning, our alumni are provided with a variety of opportunities to access the School's thought leadership for their own professional development, as well as the opportunity share it with their teams. As an additional benefit, you have the distinct opportunity to utilize the alumni discount as well as a discount exclusive to the classes of 2008 and later to reduce the cost of many popular Executive Education programs, including:

• Negotiation Strategies and Persuasion: Leading Without Authority with Professor Bob Bontempo

• Leadership Essentials with Professor Joel Brockner

• Value Investing with Professors Bruce Greenwald and Tano Santos.

As an alumnus/a of the School, you are entitled to the Alumni Tuition Benefit, which offers a 25 percent tuition benefit for you and up to four of your colleagues on non-degree Executive Education programs lasting up to seven days.

Additionally, alumni who graduated in 2008 or later have the additional tuition benefit of applying any bidding points they had remaining upon graduation as tuition dollars toward a non-degree program lasting up to seven days. Each bidding point is equal to $1 of tuition, and may be used to cover up to 50 percent of the program's tuition. These points are not transferable to colleagues. Family Wealth Management is not eligible for the benefit.

The bidding points benefit may be combined with the Alumni Tuition Benefit to cover up to 75 percent of the tuition cost for alumni at a non-degree program lasting up to seven days. Bidding points are valid for 10 years after graduation.

While your bidding points are non-transferable, please remember that your Alumni Tuition Benefit of 25 percent extends to up to four colleagues for programs lasting up to seven days. This benefit is an opportunity to provide the Columbia Business School thought leadership you've known to your teams and colleagues.

Space in Executive Education programs is limited. Please contact Executive Education for program information and Alumni Relations for questions about your bidding points availability.
