About the School
Columbia Business School offers a variety of degree programs that attract independent thinkers from eclectic backgrounds who thrive on challenges both in and outside the classroom. Our programs bridge academic theory and practice so that students develop strong foundational skills as well as a team oriented work ethic and adept leadership and decision-making capabilities. Most importantly, our students are equipped with the entrepreneurial mindset to think strategically and capture opportunity in a competitive business environment. On average, our students have three to seven years of full-time work experience prior to enrolling at Columbia.
MBA students enter in September or January and take the equivalent of five full courses per term for four terms. MBA students who enter in September typically pursue a summer internship between their first and second years. Students who enter in January complete the program in four consecutive terms, rather than taking a term off to pursue a summer internship.
The Career Management Center
Columbia Business School provides a number of ways for companies to recruit our students successfully. The Career Management Center will partner with you to connect you with the most qualified candidates for your full-time and internship hiring needs. While most students graduate in May, our program of study allows students to graduate in February or October as well, which means that our MBA students are available for fulltime hiring year round.
Post full-time, internship, MS, and experienced-level opportunities. The first time you visit the site as an employer, you will be asked to create an account with your own username and password. You will then need to complete a company and contact profile before you are brought to a page where you can access the job posting form (“Post a New Job”). The posting form includes a number of dropdown menus and textboxes to help categorize the job opportunity and make it easier for appropriate candidates to apply.
We are pleased to help promote your off-campus job posting by offering targeted outreach to a variety of industry—and affinity—based student clubs.
