Student Conferences

Columbia Business School boasts more than 100 active student clubs and associations. Throughout the academic year, alumni are invited to attend and participate in a number of programs hosted by student clubs, including conferences and panel discussions.

Reunions

During Reunion, which takes place every April, Alumni celebrating their 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50+ anniversary years come back to campus for a weekend of faculty-moderated alumni sessions and fantastic social events.

Annual Dinner

The Annual Dinner takes place on the first Monday of each May, and has represented one of Columbia Business School’s most cherished traditions for over 40 years. Alumni are invited to join more than 800 guests, including members of the Board of Overseers, alumni, corporate sponsors, faculty members, students, and friends, in a festive evening of support for Columbia Business School. Over the years, the dinner has generated millions of dollars in critical unrestricted funding, securing resources for student financial aid, faculty research, and curriculum development. A portion of each ticket is tax deductible.

Pan-European and Pan-Asian Forums

Columbia Business School’s premier alumni events are, without question, the Pan-European and Pan-Asian Forums, where hundreds of alumni from around the world gather for a celebration of the School’s global brand.

Set in extraordinary venues in an international business capital, these three–day symposiums feature top faculty, alumni, and guest speakers discussing the most important trends in business today. Evening social events take place in locations such as the Palazzo Pisani Moretta in Venice or the Frank Gehry Forum of DZ Bank in Berlin.

The next Pan–European Forum will take place in Paris, October 12 - 14, 2018.

Worldwide Alumni Club Event

For the Worldwide Alumni Club Event, alumni clubs from around the world recognize and celebrate Columbia Business School’s global alumni network by hosting programming during the month of September.
