Columbia is a wonderful place to get the best of both a college experience and the experience of living in New York City. There are good reasons beside the prestige of the school that it's so hard to get into.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I had a great experience. Most professors and courses are fantastic. The clubs and events including study trips abroad are really exceptional. The career management center was not very helpful for international students seeking opportunities in the US.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2008

I found Columbia challenging, but I loved it. Going to college in New York provided an invaluable set of experiences, academic and otherwise. Columbia also has a strong history of students committed to social justice, and I met a lot of incredible, passionate, brilliant people there.

Columbia Business School provided the ideal combination of academic rigor, career guidance, and community support that I had hoped for in my MBA experience. I have nothing but glowing things to say about the school, professors, administrators, students and alumni and am honored and humbled to be a part of this amazing network of business leaders.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2005

I can't say enough good things about Columbia. Regardless of what happens in life, to have had the privilege to have gone to one of the most prestigious schools in the world is something that no one can ever take away from you. The professors are world renown, the campus is gorgeous, the food is amazing, and nothing compares to living in New York City.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

CBS offers students with exceptional resources that are unparalleled in many aspects. The location in the City of New York means unlimited opportunities not only for career but also in terms of pursuing personal interests and enjoying unique experience for international students. Other advantages including strong global network, amazing faculty, flexible curriculum, and first-class career service. It really transformed my life and career!

Degree: City/Urban, Community and Regional Planning
Graduation Year: 2009

I believe New York is THE PLACE to study Urban Design, and Columbia GSAPP Urban Design program does great justice to that. It's an excellent 1-year program which hosts a good academic environment with great faculties, diverse background of students, the greatest library facilities and so many more! In our studio sessions, many guest critics used to come, and we got to know many people outside the school which we really appreciate. Columbia GSAPP, I believe, is a great place for networking with professionals and to learn in a competitive environment.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

My experience at the Executive MBA program at Columbia was superb. I joined thinking I needed a career change but I did not know what to do. After being exposed to great professors and classes, network with many classmates, I was able to decide my next career path. The CBS community is invaluable and I feel extremely happy to be part of it.
