At Columbia Business School, graduate students can pursue a full-time MBA, executive MBA, Ph.D., and Master of Science in marketing, financial economics or leadership. Regardless of their degree focus, students can take courses offered across Columbia University’s academic divisions as electives, which make up more than half the MBA curriculum. For students who prefer a broader education, dual degrees are offered at 10 other schools at Columbia University, varying from a master’s in urban planning to a dental degree.
In the core MBA classes, groups of about 65 students take all first-year classes together – an attempt by the school to foster a sense of community. Students can check out more than 100 graduate organizations, catch frequent presentations by business leaders and research in more than 20 centers on campus, like the Center for Decision Sciences and the Center on Japanese Economy and Business. Graduate students may live in university housing but are not guaranteed a spot.
Notable alumni of the Columbia Business School include Gail J. McGovern, president and CEO of the American Red Cross; Henry Kravis, founding partner of private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co.; and Shelly Lazarus, chairman emeritus and former CEO of Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide.
