Overview

The decision to go to business school can have a profound affect on your life, and the decision about which business school to attend is just as important. Choosing an MBA program is about more than average GMAT scores and admission rates — every school has a personality, and how well that personality meshes with your own will be essential to your success academically, socially, and professionally. At Columbia, we aim to find students who are not only intelligent and accomplished, but ones who are going to thrive in our rigorous academic environment while helping to shape our close-knit and diverse community.

The Admissions Office offers many ways to learn more about Columbia Business School’s strengths, as well as its character.
