Columbia University is committed to the advancement of knowledge and learning at the highest level and to conveying the products of its efforts across the world. Embodying this mission, Columbia Business School (CBS) develops transformative ideas and leaders – from the very center of business. The School’s M.S., M.B.A., Ph.D. and Executive Education programs cultivate builders of enterprise who create value for their stakeholders and society at large.
CBS further prepares these students for career success by connecting their classroom education to the trading floors, board rooms, and retail stores where theory is put into practice. Columbia Business School is equally committed to creating and disseminating pathbreaking knowledge, concepts and tools which advance the understanding and practice of management.
