Join over 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. This year, the iconic Milstein Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History will again serve as the backdrop for this cherished celebration of impact and community at the very center of business.
