Military in Business Association

The Military in Business Association (MIBA), is the veteran community on campus for Columbia Business School students. MIBA builds a support system for veterans at Columbia Business School and helps its members tackle the challenges of business school and a creating a successful transition to a career outside of the military. The education, mentorship, and community provided by MIBA allows veteran students to make the most of their Columbia Business School experience.

MIBA works to connect with veteran alumni of Columbia Business School, provide access to career recruitment, and spearhead events to help advocate for veterans and educate classmates about the military. Additionally, MIBA offers outreach to prospective veteran students and works closely with the Office of Admissions.

Diversity Matters, an annual afternoon event highlighting diversity and inclusion at Columbia Business School, will be hosted in conjunction with the Black Business Students Association, Columbia Women in Business, Cluster Q, the Hispanic Business Association, and the Military in Business Association this fall.

Together with the Office of Admissions, MIBA will also hold a full-day event for veterans and active duty military personnel interested in learning more about joining the Columbia Business School community on Friday, November 10. Spotlight On: MIBA will provide insight into the veteran community at Columbia Business School and allow prospective students to learn more about student life, academics, financial aid, and the admissions process.
