Exchange Programs and Partnerships

Since 1991, the Chazen Institute and Columbia Business School have initiated partnerships with universities around the world. Each institution was selected based on its academic standing within its country, as well as for its particular cultural attributes. The MBA Exchange Program provides third- and fourth-term students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the business environment through a study-abroad experience. Nearly two dozen of the world’s best-known graduate management institutions take part in the exchange program. While overseas, students gain firsthand knowledge of another culture’s educational and business environment while enhancing their understanding of international business issues.

Current partner schools in China are as follows:

Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (website) - Summer only


Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (website)


Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management (website)
