Columbia Business School
Columbia Business School wants big thinkers who want to make the big decisions. It wants courageous self-starters who will lead by reason, not dogma. Columbia provides its students with the tools to conquer the vagaries of the real world, which lie just outside the school's doors in New York City's Upper Manhattan. With its multicultural culture and multinational commerce – on top of being in the financial center of the universe – New York provides students with the ultimate "living laboratory." Columbia particularly prides itself on bridging the gap between classroom and boardroom, so that today's research leads to tomorrow's best practices.
Demonstrating its own flexibility, Columbia recently redesigned its curriculum and divided courses into essential core and flexible core. Perhaps the most popular new option is the Master Class series, which focuses on a specific industry through real-time project work and involvement by key business leaders. Budding entrepreneurs are flocking to Launching New Ventures, which focuses on aggressive, effective fund-raising. One ground-breaking course is managerial negotiations, which applies behavioral science and game theory in coursework. Classes at Columbia's other graduate schools are also available to MBA students, opening up over 4,000 courses campus wide.
If you aim to be a globe-trotter, then you will welcome Columbia's curriculum – which emphasizes the global nature of commerce. Your work on a case study at Columbia might have you traveling abroad to tease apart a problem or to gather critical information. Hundreds of students attend 24 affiliated business schools across the world as part of the Columbia's exchange program, or they participate in one of Columbia's language immersion programs.
