Finance and Economics is the largest division of Columbia Business School, offering nearly half the courses at the School. Recruiters consistently rank Columbia among the top schools in the country for finance, and more than half of the School's graduating MBAs take finance-related jobs. Our many distinguished alumni in the financial world provide us with one of the country's strongest networks of contacts and support.
The strength of the Finance and Economics Division lies in its alumni, students, and faculty members, who include world-class scholars and award-winning teachers. Wall Street practitioners supplement our curriculum with their insight drawn from the practical world of finance. Because of our location in the world's financial center, we offer an unparalleled range of courses, from the broadest perspective to very specific areas of interest. Our students boast strong academic credentials, varied business backgrounds and an array of nationalities, interests, and talents. We expect them to be among tomorrow's industry leaders.
