The Columbia campus is both a beautiful, bustling ‘academic village’ near the banks of the Hudson River and a gateway to a major capital city of global business – enabling frequent guest lectures and positioning us at the very center of business.
Offering a traditional Ivy League setting within the cosmopolitan swirl of Manhattan, Columbia University’s Italian Renaissance-style campus provides a base from which to explore New York’s multinational businesses, thousands of restaurants, major financial exchanges and more.
Cultural and other attractions are easily reached, and many students schedule time to enjoy them with family members – or one another – in conjunction with the New York classes. Action-oriented teaching, a global focus, cutting-edge research and an extensive network are among the competitive advantages that have consistently earned Columbia a top spot in executive MBA programme rankings.
Students also benefit from being part of the wider Columbia University community, long known for its intellectual capital – 13 winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics have taught or studied at Columbia, including University Professor Joseph Stiglitz, who often teaches at the Business School. Other schools at the University – especially Law, Journalism, and International and Public Affairs – provide connection to valuable intellectual and professional resources.
