So you want to study abroad? Before applying to the MBA Exchange Program, please carefully review the eligibility requirements and how to apply. Each partner school has different regulations and offerings. Please thoroughly research the schools you are interested in and contact the Chazen Institute if you have additional questions.
*Chazen continues to work with the partner schools about details for 2021/2022 exchange programs and will communicate updates as we have them.
Things to consider:
- Second-year students may go abroad only during their third or fourth term
- Applications are not binding- applicants will be notified if they have been given a spot and then decide if they accept. There will be another deadline for committing before students are nominated to their host schools.
- Candidates must have completed all core course requirements and have a solid academic record with a minimum GPA of 5.5 before the exchange semester to be eligible.
- Students will have to “pay” 4000 bid points. Plan ahead to ensure you save the requisite points to participate. *due to current the uncertainty of fall exchange travel, the 4000 bid points will be charged once the exchange plan has been finalized student has committed to exchange- no bid points are charged at time of application.
- For some schools, a student may not apply to a country where he or she is a citizen or a permanent resident.
- Dual-degree students are not eligible to study abroad.
- Participating students pay tuition and fees to Columbia University and are responsible for all travel, accommodations, books, and miscellaneous expenses.
