Business 360 (Online)

Business 360 (Online): Business Acceleration Program is a three-month program that tackles the fundamentals of business — leading a team, creating a customer-centric organization, and developing financial acumen. Business 360 (Online) is designed for those who do not have a formal education in business. You could have a non-business degree and are taking on your first managerial role, be a small business owner looking to enhance core business skills, or simply looking for a primer on business fundamentals.


The program enables you to accelerate your impact, through an intensive learning journey that will equip you to take on the world of business head on. The key components of the program are:

  • Enhancing leadership effectiveness
  • Leadership and decision making
  • Influencing others
  • Customer-centric marketing
  • Developing financial intuition
  • Launching new products
  • Leading and managing teams
  • Building social capital

Participants will also experience Columbia Business School’s proprietary 360 Assessment Tool.


With a focus on immediate application, participants will also work on a capstone case study, individual and team assignments, cases, self assessments, and group discussions and will apply learnings immediately to their unique contexts. Students will also be part of a powerful learning community comprised of a diverse group of fellow participants from a broad range of industries, functions, experiences, and geographies.
