Get Involved

Give back to Columbia Business School by volunteering: it'll maximize both your personal and professional relationships within the alumni network while strengthening the value and effectiveness of events, clubs, and other alumni initiatives.

Alumni who are part of the Ambassador Program help Columbia Business School increase the size and quality of its program by interviewing applicants and recommending prospective students in more than 50 countries.

Volunteering can also help expand your skills. As a club leader you will plan and coordinate student trips and events, while taking part in your reunion committee gives you an opportunity to take mini-courses and network with other alumni. You may also want to consider coming back to Columbia as an event speaker to share your expertise with students.

Club Leader

We welcome you to volunteer with our alumni clubs. As a volunteer, you can help plan industry programming, coordinate activities and student trips, facilitate young alumni events, or serve as a liaison for the Career Management Center. If you are interested, please visit the Alumni Clubs page and click the location of the club nearest you, where you'll find details on who to contact.

Event Speaker

Throughout the academic year, Alumni Relations and various student clubs host panel discussions, student club conferences, career networking events, and the EMBA Lunchtime Speaker Series. We welcome alumni to speak to students about their industry and expertise at these events.

If you are interested in being a guest speaker or a panelist and would like more information, please contact Megan Shaughnessy at

Reunion Committee

Each year, we are delighted to welcome alumni back to Columbia Business School for a weekend of reconnecting with old friends, networking, and mini-courses. All alumni of the MBA and EMBA programs who are celebrating their 1st, 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 35th, 40th, 45th, and 50th years, as well as those members of the Platinum Classes who have already celebrated their 50th, are invited to Reunion weekend.
