New York City
At Columbia, the Business School and the city are intertwined. And no matter what your specific interest, New York is the perfect place to explore it. Often, students find our more than 100 student-run clubs and organizations a good place to start. In the Small Business Consulting Program, for example, students work closely with real businesses from the area, advising owners while gaining hands-on experience putting the theory they learn in the classroom into practice. Past clients have included everything from a local theater company to Harlem retailers to a foundation for war veterans and their families.
There are plenty of other ways you'll engage with the city as a student, as well, thanks in large part to our extensive local alumni network. The Media Program's annual Career Night, for instance, draws more than 800 students and alumni, including executives from major firms like the New York Times, BET, and Reuters. Courses like Experiential Marketing bring students to brick and mortar retail outlets to analyze their practices, and recruiting events regularly involve field trips to corporate headquarters in the city.
Throughout their experience at Columbia, our students find the School inseparable from the global business hub it's located in. Columbia isn't just in New York, it is New York.
