Admissions

Who

Each year, applicants from a wide variety of cultural, personal, and professional backgrounds apply to the Columbia MBA program.

And while every student who joins our community is unique, they share certain defining traits: they are driven by a strong work ethic, ready to build and foster professional and personal relationships, and are determined to make a real impact on the world through their chosen field.

How

Attend an information session or contact the Admissions Office to learn more about getting the right recommendations, taking the GMAT, and other details you’ll need before you apply. When all your materials are ready, submit your application securely, entirely online, including your transcripts and recommendations.

When

Columbia Business School uses a rolling admissions process, which means applications are reviewed — and decisions rendered — as they are received. It is always advantageous for you to submit your application as early as possible. For more detailed information on early decision and J-Term applications, see our Options and Deadlines page.
