Attend an Event

Get Involved with your Alumni Club
There are more than 75 alumni clubs around the world, so no matter where you work, live, or travel the Columbia Business School network is there for you. Young alumni are especially encouraged to get involved with their local alumni club. These clubs are led by talented volunteers who organize a variety of stimulating professional and social events, which provide alumni with many opportunities to exchange ideas and network with peers.
Volunteer with the School
Give back to Columbia Business School by volunteering: it'll maximize both your personal and professional relationships within the alumni network while strengthening the value and effectiveness of events, clubs, and other alumni initiatives.
Alumni who are part of the Ambassador Program help Columbia Business School increase the size and quality of its program by interviewing applicants and recommending prospective students in more than 50 countries. As a club leader you will plan and coordinate student trips and events, while taking part in your reunion committee gives you an opportunity to take mini-courses and network with other alumni. You may also want to consider coming back to Columbia as an event speaker to share your expertise with students.
