Overview

No business school alumni network is more accessible than Columbia's. Over 40,000-strong, our alumni work in more than 100 countries, often at the very top of their fields. Their passion for the School is reflected in the time they give to current students through mentoring, lectures, internships, and so much more.

You will have access to alumni from the moment you begin your program, through initiatives like the Columbia Career Network. Here, current students have the opportunity to meet with alumni in their chosen industry, laying the first bricks in the foundation of your lifelong network. After graduation, many join or start alumni clubs in their cities, actively maintaining their relationship with the School and their fellow graduates, completing the circle with connections that will last a lifetime.
