What makes Columbia Business School unique?

November 12, 2019

As the only top Ivy League business school immersed in the global business hub that is New York City, Columbia Business School offers students unparalleled access to leaders from across industries — in the classroom, throughout the city, and around the globe.

On November 12, the Beijing Center supported Columbia Business School to host an information session at the Center, which provided prospective students and their parents an exclusive access to learn about admissions process, requirements and resources for international applicants, academic advising, extracurricular activities, financial aid, careers and internships, and other topics.

Columbia Business School was founded in 1916. Over the past 100 years, the School has evolved alongside the ever-changing world of business with unparalleled advantages in a variety of fields. Its greatest value lies in its close connection between the curriculum and real-world experience. Informed in real time by the global business environment, they teach a transformative and ever-evolving curriculum that develops leaders poised to create opportunity in any environment.

Amanda B. Carlson, Assistant Dean of Admissions at Columbia Business School, gave an introduction to the School and the unique opportunities Columbia offers. She then introduced the Deferred Enrollment Program, which offers undergraduate students a chance to gain a few years of work experience with a guarantee of admission to Columbia's highly selective MBA program, and the flexibility to begin the full-time program two to five years after college graduation. She also took questions from prospective students and parents during the Q&A session and after the whole session ended.
