Business Online Seat Selection (BOSS)The Business Online Seat Selection (BOSS) system, is an online tool used by Business School MBA and EMBA students to reserve seats in courses that are available each semester. Several months prior to the start of a semester, the course bidding begins. Each student is allotted bid points, which they can then use to bid on courses.
During bidding rounds, students are given the flexibility to make bids, change the amounts they bid on, and drop bids as often as they like. The final set of bids for a particular round are processed after the round is closed. Students are able to drop courses they have successfully bid on in subsequent rounds.
Active students can access the BOSS system at http://boss.gsb.columbia.edu.
