Special Concentration in Business Management


This collaboration between Columbia College, the School of General Studies, and Columbia Business School offers undergraduate students access to the ideas and expertise of the Business School’s world-renowned thought leaders through a series of elective courses.

These courses, designed by Columbia Business School faculty members specifically for undergraduates, build upon the strong liberal arts foundation of Columbia’s undergraduate curriculum. Students learn how finance is directly connected to the fundamental principles of economics, that marketing utilizes concepts from psychology, how management depends upon principles developed in psychology and sociology, and more. Students have the opportunity to broaden their business education beyond the classroom by participating in co-curricular activities with the Business School, including a faculty lecture series, industry panels, informal mentoring and networking activities with MBA students and alumni, and opportunities to work on research with Columbia Business School faculty members.

This curricular and co-curricular programming capitalizes on Columbia Business School’s ability to connect academic theory with real-world practice, which provides students the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills, hone an entrepreneurial mindset, and strengthen their ability to innovate.
