Amanda Carlson has been named Assistant Dean of Admissions at Columbia Business School. Carlson joined the admissions team in 2002 as a coordinator and most recently served as director of admissions. In her new position, she will oversee the MBA and Executive MBA programs.
Prior to joining Columbia, Carlson worked in campus recruiting for McKinsey & Company. She has also served on the board of the Forte Foundation and as a member of the Graduate Management Admissions Council’s (GMAC) annual conference advisory committee. Carlson holds a bachelor’s degree in religion from Princeton University, a master’s degree in organizational psychology from Teachers College at Columbia University, and will soon begin her final semester in the School’s EMBA-Global Asia Program.
Carlson follows former assistant dean of admissions Mary Miller, who is now program director for EMBA-Global Asia, a joint program offered by the University of Hong Kong, London Business School, and Columbia Business School.
“Mary’s many contributions to the School and to the recruitment of our highly qualified student body have been impressive, and she will be missed,” said Dean Glenn Hubbard. “Mary and Amanda worked closely together on our admissions strategy, and with Amanda’s expertise in admissions, we are confident that she will continue the great work already underway and be a strong leader for our terrific admissions team.”
