About

Our curriculum is constantly evolving to meet the changing demands of business. Through our core courses, we develop students into leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset. They learn an invaluable set of skills essential to recognizing opportunities and seizing them. We teach students to connect the dots; to look at business challenges from across disciplines, with an integrated perspective. And we provide the guidance and opportunity for them to evolve as effective leaders, so they will not only stand out in the first year after graduation, but in the decades beyond as they move further and further ahead in their careers.

Centered in New York City, the global hub of business, Columbia Business School offers its diverse and entrepreneurial students daily access to influential industry leaders.

Our renowned faculty members are at the forefront of their fields, producing groundbreaking research across disciplines. And our worldwide alumni network continues to grow and impact change. At Columbia Business School today, we're celebrating our place at the very center of it all.

Mission Statement

Our mission is twofold: we are committed to educating and developing leaders and builders of enterprises who create value for their stakeholders and society at large; we accomplish this through our MBA, MS, PhD, and Executive Education programs.

We are equally committed to developing new scholars and teachers, and to creating and disseminating pathbreaking knowledge, concepts, and tools which advance the understanding and practice of management; we accomplish this through our faculty research and PhD programs.
