Every year, Columbia Business School's Center on Japanese Economy and Business (CJEB) hosts roughly 10-15 Visiting Scholars. Candidates for this program are selected from a variety of backgrounds in Japanese business, government, and academia to spend a period of time in residence at Columbia Business School. CJEB Visiting Scholars receive a unique research and networking experience at one of the world's most prestigious Business Schools within a top ranking University and a dynamic city.

CJEB Visiting Scholars have access to many Columbia University campus resources, including twenty-two libraries and a rich and diverse calendar of public events at the Business School and beyond. They audit classes in the Business School and other schools of Columbia (with the instructor's permission), and can attend any or all of CJEB's public events. CJEB also organizes several events per year specifically for CJEB Visiting Scholars, including networking gatherings. In addition, we arrange a monthly research meeting for CJEB Visiting Scholars and core faculty and advisors, where each Visiting Scholar is asked to give one short presentation on his/her research.

CJEB staff offers administrative and research support to our Visiting Scholars to help assist in the transition to life on campus. Please note that the Center and Columbia University are unfortunately unable to arrange for or provide housing or health insurance for Visiting Scholars. Each Visiting Scholar must find his or her own housing and make his or her own arrangements for health coverage. Further information on this and many other topics of importance for visitors to Columbia can be accessed on the International Student and Scholar Office webpage for incoming visitors: http://www.columbia.edu/cu/isso/incoming/
