The flexibility of the Columbia Business School MBA is one feature that many of our students find particularly compelling — being a student here gives you not only choice but also opportunity. Making the most of these opportunities can be daunting, however, without expert guidance. This is the central mission of the Office of Student Affairs — to be your primary source for academic-related questions and answers and to provide you with clearer explanations of the School’s policies, procedures and requirements. In addition, we can help you with:
- Academic planning, counseling, and support
- Academic assistance (tutoring, coordination with Office of Disability Services)
- Disciplinary & grievance procedures
- Academic standing, graduation requirements, academic warnings, and probation
- Changes in status, including voluntary and medical withdrawals, and leaves-of-absence
Our office also serves as an important link between students, administrators, and academic departments. We work in tandem with other essential departments around the School and the University, including:
- University Registrar
- Student Financial Services
- International Students & Scholars Office
- Health Services
- Office of Disability Services
- Counseling and Psychological Services
We also have an MBA Student Guide that includes all the information you need to fulfill your academic requirements and plan a program that best suits your goals. We want you to have 24-hour-a-day access to academic guidance — no lines, no waiting. If you have general questions, the guide can provide you with a set of general answers but should you need more personalized help, please stop by our office in 105 Uris.
We look forward to helping you make the most of your education at Columbia Business School.
