On Veteran’s Day, November 11, Columbia Business School will host an event for active duty military and veterans interested in pursuing an MBA, bringing together prospective student veterans with current student veterans. The event will spotlight the mentorship and community provided by The Military in Business Association (MIBA), the veteran community on campus for Columbia Business School students.
In addition, several student veterans and their stories have been highlighted on the Columbia Business School website and its social media platforms in a series of photographs and quotes detailing some of their experiences.

“I chose Columbia Business School because I needed the best of the best in order to make a successful transition out of the military and into the business world,” said Coree Mahoney ’18, Lt US Navy, and one of the students profiled.
Columbia Business School honors and supports it student veterans with organizations such as MIBA which help its members successfully thrive at business school and create a vibrant and rewarding career outside of the military. MIBA also works to connect with veteran alumni of Columbia Business School, provide access to career recruitment, and spearhead events which help advocate for veterans and educate classmates about the military.
“Our student led groups provide opportunities throughout the semester to celebrate the many different cultures at Columbia Business School,” said Zelon Crawford, Dean of Student Affairs. “MIBA is part of the unique MBA experience we offer to transitioning veterans.”
