Hey

Questions are out now -
Applicants must complete one short answer question and three essays.

Short Answer Question

What is your immediate post-MBA professional goal? (100 characters maximum)

Examples of possible responses










Essay 1:

Given your individual background, why are you pursuing a Columbia MBA at this time? (Maximum 500 words)

Essay 2:

Columbia Business School is located in the heart of the world's business capital - Manhattan. How do you anticipate that New York City will impact your experience at Columbia? (Maximum 250 words)

Please view the videos below:

New York City - limitless possibilities

New York City - fast paced and adaptable

Essay 3:

What will the people in your Cluster be pleasantly surprised to learn about you? (Maximum 250 words)

Optional Essay

An optional fourth essay will allow you to discuss any issues that do not fall within the purview of the required essays.

Knight-Bagehot Fellows

Rather than answer Essay 1, Part A above, current Knight-Bagehot Fellows applying to Columbia Business School should use the space allocated to the first essay (500 words) to complete the Wiegers Fellowship application essay.

Agree on renaming the thread to Class of 2015. Has Columbia began admitting any folks to the J-Term yet (from the Regular Fall Waitlisters) ? Thanks for the info!

Cheers

what's the demographic typically like for a J-Term student? I currently have 5 years of experience in IB / Corpfin so just curious if this is the type of program for me. Haven't met anyone from J-Term

Do you want to stay in that career field or something similar? Typically J-term is bad for career switchers or fields where you tend to get hired from a summer internship(since you won't have an internship). If you have strong experience and don't need an internship then this is the quickest route through the program and might be good for you.

I don't mind staying in the current field I'm in actually (strategy and planning). When I started the process I was set on going back to a part-time program but the idea of getting an MBA from M7 sounds way more appealing now after hours of research :) I did i-banking before switching to corporate (I was in final round for a small PE fund...which I didn't get) and I still have a glimmer of desire to go into IM...but most likely to end up in CF.

Submitted my application on 16th Aug. Waiting to hear! Seems like it is a 2 - 3 week wait.

Do they send a confirmation saying all aspects of the application are in place?

I don't think they will tell you when everything is set. I think the best way is to double check the application proof and submission sheet (that shows the required documents). If you're unsure, maybe its best to call the office and ask... but I didn't receive a notification.

Good luck to you both!

Not yet. My rec was in on 8/28, so I still have 1-2 weeks of waiting to do before I will hear back.

Congratulations! I am in my 4th week since application but haven't heard anything. Is 3 weeks the norm or the exception?
