MBA Courses


Columbia’s MBA Program curriculum prepares students to lead, build, and manage enterprises while instilling an awareness of the societal effects of business decisions.

In the first year, the intensive core curriculum provides the foundation of broad management skills necessary to succeed in any industry. In the second year, students select courses relevant to their specific career goals from a wide range of Business School electives and optional graduate-level classes taught at one of the University's 12 graduate and professional schools.

Information on specific courses, by term or by area of focus, can be found in this directory; students seeking further suggestions for courses relevant to a specific area of study should consult the appropriate division, center, or program.
