Theory in Practice
What you learn from our faculty members will be instantly applicable in real-world situations.

With this knowledge in hand, you and your learning team will work to develop innovative solutions to real-world business problems.
Take one look around our beautiful Morningside Heights campus and you will see the world reflected in our culture and the content of our work. Students come to Columbia Business School from almost 90 countries and bring with them every kind of business experience.
Columbia’s relationship with New York City cannot be underestimated when choosing an MBA program. The city fuels so much of what happens at the School, from our Executives in Residence program to Master Classes to speakers and conferences — in fact, more business leaders visit our campus than any other top business school.
At the very heart of our philosophy is the entrepreneurial mindset. Our courses will teach you to emphasize your individual initiative by identifying, valuing, and capturing opportunity no matter what field you’re in.
No business school alumni network is more accessible than Columbia's. Over 40,000 strong, our alumni work in more than 100 countries, often at the very top of their fields. Their passion for the School is reflected in the time they give to current students through mentoring, lectures, internships, and so much more.
With an MBA from Columbia, your career prospects multiply exponentially. Students begin the transformation of their professional life with a visit to the Career Management Center. The CMC is here to help connect you with opportunities, from internships to full-time employment, and provide guidance throughout the cycles of your career.
Whether you come to us from across the world or on a crosstown bus, your student experience will be defined by much more than coursework. Take part in campus traditions, community service, and student organizations that reflect a full spectrum of backgrounds and interests. Visit OSA (the Office of Student Affairs) to learn more and get support for yourself, your spouse, or your family.
