Columbia Business School and the Value Investing Program

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for CBS

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2016

Experience during the program

Going to CBS and participating in the Value Investing Program was easily the best career and life decision I've ever made. I had heard a great deal about the program before I attended but it vastly exceeded my expectations. The quality of students, and even more importantly the faculty and adjunct faculty, cannot be overstated. I was learning directly from some the greatest investors of our generation and that would not have been possible at any other b-school. The opportunity to supplement your learning through internships at NYC hedge funds is huge - this was a key part of my and my fellow investing-oriented classmates education. If you know you want to work on the buyside or any investing-related role, there is no doubt in my mind that CBS is the best place for you.

About job placement process

Every hedge/mutual fund you can think of recruits or has recruited on campus. More importantly, due to CBS' extensive alumni network, you can make in-roads with any fund you want and get in front of them - the rest is up to you. The opportunity is there if you are willing to do the work and put in the time and effort.
