Financial Times Ranks Columbia Business School

The Financial Times announced today that Columbia Business School ranks # 3 worldwide for the third year in a row. The annual survey of international MBA programs also ranks Columbia Business School # 2 for current alumni salary and #2 for alumni salary growth since graduation.
