The Club's Mission Is To Strengthen Our Alumni Community
Our mission is to increase the value of the Columbia MBA by strengthening the alumni network and support services available to alumni. We endeavor to strengthen the Columbia Business School alumni community through a number of initiatives:
Organizing business programs and structured networking events aimed at strengthening participants' professional development and promoting interaction among alumni. CBSAC/NY events feature distinguished speakers, practical workshops, topical panel discussions, and other educational and networking activities. These are designed not only to keep members well informed, but also for members to learn from each other. Events are open to members, their guests and interested colleagues from the business community. We seek to add value to our members’ MBA degrees.
Sponsoring our team of volunteers in numerous industry committees, which serve as educational forums for alumni to meet colleagues in their respective fields, and management committees that help us run the Club. These are listed on our committees page, and they occasionally change to reflect the evolving needs of our membership. We also offer speakers to club events at the school and connect alumni with mentoring activities at the school.
Providing convenient networking opportunities that encourage members to get acquainted, forge business contacts, make new friends, keep up with old friends, have fun, facilitate access, and pursue shared interests in a stimulating, receptive, supportive, and collegial environment.
Offering a package of benefits that includes discounted admission to CBSAC/NY events for each member and a guest, regular e-mail messages informing members of upcoming events, a frequently updated website and event calendar, discounts on various products and services, and the opportunity to join our industry committees, management, or Board of Directors.
Fostering closer ties between club members, students and the faculty of our highly rated alma mater, Columbia Business School.
