Promoting your events is an essential part of the recruitment process. Marketing your company’s opportunities allows you to connect with students and build brand awareness.
You may send one group e-mail message per event to all members of the targeted class by directing the message to one or both of the following addresses:
|CLASS OF 2024||Entire Class||[email protected]|
|CLASS OF 2025||August Entrants only||[email protected]|
|CLASS OF 2025||January Entrants*||[email protected]|
*In the Fall semester, only e-mail First-Year August Entrants.
When you schedule a company event through the Career Management Center, we will add it to the student event calendar in COIN. Please be sure to submit a full description for the calendar.
Event listings should include the following information, as applicable, about the presentation:
- Appropriate attire
- Divisions presenting
- Speakers’ names (including, if alumni, year of graduation from Columbia Business School)
- Complete industry and functional focus represented
- Job location(s)
- RSVP details if registration is also being collected outside of COIN.
- Specify if “All Students Are Welcome To Apply” or “Permanent US Work Authorization Required” for full-time or summer internship positions in the event description.
If you are interested in elevating your brand awareness and building strategic relationships on campus, connect with the Corporate Relations and Career Management Center teams to determine which types of sponsorship best meet your goals.
Visit the Classroom
One of the best ways to get a recruiting edge with our students is to engage with them in the classroom. There, you’ll be able to have an intimate, frank conversation on the issues facing business today. You’ll be able to provide insights that allow students to see theoretical concepts at play in the real world. You also give current students a firsthand look at their post-MBA possibilities. Not to mention, you’ll build close ties with our leading-edge faculty members, whose work continually drives current business practice.
Promote to Clubs
Student clubs play a major role in the development of Columbia MBAs. With over 100 student groups on campus, opportunities abound for them to pursue passions and develop skills to aid their post-graduation success. These clubs are also a way for recruiters to connect with students with specific interests.
Companies can get involved with clubs by hosting networking events, presenting business cases, participating in brown-bag lunches or panel events, or becoming sponsors for conferences and other events.
At the Career Management Center, we help clubs manage their calendars, keep a level recruiting playing field, and minimize conflicts. Student feedback consistently indicates a preference for fewer events — as a result, each event should include a robust number of company representatives to maximize student-company interaction.
All events, including those targeting student clubs, must be submitted through COIN for the CMC to ensure a conflict-free calendar.
