Columbia Business School and the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley, will join forces to create an Executive MBA program capitalizing on the financial, technological and entrepreneurial expertise of both schools. The Columbia-Berkeley Executive MBA blends the distinctive strengths of the two schools: Wall Street and Silicon Valley; New York and California. The new program will enroll its first class of executive participants in June 2002.
The Columbia-Berkeley Executive MBA is the newest addition to the Columbia EMBA portfolio. Prospective EMBA students may also choose EMBA-Global, a collaboration with the London Business School that features an alternating schedule between New York and London, or the New York–based EMBA program.
