An amazing first year at Columbia Business School


This review is for CBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Although it has been only my first quarter, it already feels like it's been an eternity. In this time I've come to greatly appreciate my classmates, the faculty members, and the resources that are made available to all MBA students. The school does an incredible job of inducting new students into the school, and ensuring that they'll be accommodated an integrated well into the student body.

The Career Management Center takes charge within the first few weeks, and starts educating students in terms of the opportunities available comma and the work that needs to be done in order to get the internship that the students would like.

The professors and faculty members are extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and know their subject well. I was particularly surprised by their ability to integrate humour into classroom situations and to draw on the classroom experience to enrich the case or concept at hand.

The school's location is most definitely one of its key advantages. Just by being in New York City you get to experience so many different things, network with the decision-makers at firms, and hear from industry leaders and experts. I personally got a chance to spend an hour with the global managing director of McKinsey & Co, Mr. Dominic Barton.

Overall, I am extremely glad that I chose the school.
