Students who select the 20-month Friday/Saturday option, which begins in January and September, attend on-campus classes on alternating weekends from 8:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The first two terms are jump-started with a week-long residence period at the IBM Palisades business center.
Students complete 21 courses (11 core, 10 electives), totaling 60 credits over five consecutive terms. Students are strongly encouraged to take one International Seminar as part of the elective credits. The new IBS curriculum helps Columbia Business School students develop frameworks and tools to think critically about conflicts and tradeoffs in the workplace. Every MBA core course includes cases and discussion of these issues. Guest speakers and panel debates featuring faculty members, alumni and business leaders complement the classroom experience.
Graduates of the program will receive an MBA degree from Columbia University.
