Building on the 40-year tradition of the Annual Dinner, 2016’s Centennial Dinner was a milestone celebration, serving as a centerpiece of Columbia Business School’s year-long festivities to mark our first 100 years of innovation and community. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of our alumni, parents, corporate partners, and friends, 1,200 of whom were in attendance at the Waldorf Astoria, the event raised $7 million in critical unrestricted support for the School, securing resources for student financial aid, faculty research, and curricular innovations.

The 41st Annual Dinner will take place on Monday, May 1, 2017, at the American Museum of Natural History. For details and to register, visit
