The Columbia Business School Alumni Club is a non-profit club founded in 1975 by alumni for Columbia Business School alumni, students, and faculty in the New York CIty tri-state area. Membership is also open to alumni of other selective business schools and graduates or graduate students of select schools in other fields.
Our goal is to extend our community and to be a resource for members. We also hope to strengthen the business school alumni network and to support the continued professional growth of our members. Our club is distinguished by the talent of our members and directors. We have grown to be the most active business alumni club in the region. We host more than 40 events annually – and the menu offerings are distinguished by both variety and quality. They include lectures by distinguished business leaders, practical workshops, and inspiring topical panel discussions which highlight current and future industry trends, as well as providing educational, social and business networking opportunities for members. We offer full-day workshops with business thought leaders offered at a fraction of the price you might pay elsewhere.We also offer athletic and social events.
The value of an MBA is not merely measured by academic credits and grades. In the spirit of Columbia Business School, we provide a venue to forge important professional and social relationships in a supportive and stimulating environment. We continue to change and evolve in response to the changing business environment and academic climate, placing greater emphasis on entrepreneurialism and financial-technology, medical-technology, and media-technology business environments in recent years.
We place a high value on innovation and creative thinking (and fun!); our event offerings reflect this philosophy. Our leadership team includes representatives of many industries, founders of successful start-ups and talented entrepreneurs. We have hosted events in chic exclusive environments including cocktail parties at Christie’s auction house. We recently hosted a seminar on Japanese leadership that provided the unique opportunity to meet a Japanese ambassador. This is your chance to meet and get invaluable business insight from the most successful CEOs of top corporations and rainmakers in real estate and finance.
Some recent popular events include:
- A Walking Tour of the Infamous Newtown Creek
- The Business of Building a Pioneering Precision Medicine Initiative
- Social Media Strategies for Investing.
And many more....
The fun has just begun. We welcome your participation.
