Columbia’s MBA program is grounded in a set of 10 core courses, most of which students take during their first year. Two of the courses, Financial Accounting and Corporate Finance, are full-term courses, while the remaining courses are half-term courses, including Managerial Statistics, Business Analytics, Strategy Formulation, Managerial Economics, and Global Economic Environment.
Students also choose from a robust offering of electives, which range from Applied Value Investing and Impact Investing to Managerial Negotiations and Healthcare Industry in the 21st Century. The courses are taught by the school’s 150 full-time faculty members and more than 100 adjunct faculty, who are leaders in a diverse array of industries.
Finally, students benefit from the school’s Career Management Center, which helps students as they search for internships and full-time employment. In addition to providing individual sessions with advisors to help students develop job search strategies, the center offers clinics and workshops featuring tactical advice for a successful job search.
