Who Can I Recruit?

Whether you’re looking for a hungry, entry-level contributor or an experienced leader, Columbia Business School students and alumni are ready to step in and make a difference. That’s because our community is rich with business talent.

All of our students have trained with the very best teachers and practitioners in their fields. They’ve been immersed in real-time business practices and are prepared to help drive your firm to the next level. And if you’re looking for recruits with expertise in law, science, or other fields, you can also reach out to one of the other career offices on campus.


For the roughly 550 Full-Time MBA students that start school in September, the summer provides an opportunity to explore a new function or industry of interest. Internships are also valuable to many companies, as they can use this time to assess a student’s fit for full-time employment after graduation.

We have about 200 students that start the MBA Program in January. They do not seek internships, since they take classes during the summer term. Companies often visit campus over the summer to meet this group of MBAs. For these students in particular, and increasingly for all students, school-year internships and projects provide connections to employers.

Interns can be recruited through job postings, resume book databases or on-campus recruiting.

Intern Profile

“I was inspired by the class Launching Social Ventures with Ron Gonen '04. From all of the great entrepreneurs he brought in, I saw that so many of the new and exciting ventures that are changing the world have a tech component. It got me excited about pursuing technology to influence social change. That experience led me to an internship at Google, where I fell in love with the culture and the breadth of the company's reach. I'll be returning there to work full-time, likely in the global education group.”
—Jenny Tolan '14, Google
