    Lets deal with the elephant in the room. The admissions officers pass around your photo and judge you on your appearance, maybe with a laugh or too. It plays a role in admissions decisions, because appearance plays a major role in life, especially in business. They don’t want any uglies in their school.

    I was so inspired by this video then disappointed to see no twitter results for #whycbs. =[ well, sometimes twitter can’t search their hashtags very well maybe?

    @taillebasse1 I have to say that I resent your comments. Columbia Business School (along with most other top-tier b-schools) prides itself in its moral and ethical standing. We (students) are investing a lot of effort, time, and money in our education so that we can be prepared to be entrepreneurial and successful in the business world… Not so that we can be corrupt and sit on boards.

    You may be looking to throw blame somewhere for a struggling economy, but CBS is not the right place.

    Good question… I actually don’t know the reasoning behind it. I haven’t seen the picture since submitting it with the application. AND It won’t be used later for your class roster or Student ID card (you submit a new photo for those).

    Mia is right! I can speak about the alumni network in Latin America, specially in Argentina where they have been extremely helpful and very receptive from the very first day I started thinking about CBS

    CBS has an amazing alumni group. Obviously, lots of alums are in New York, but there are many in other cities as well. You could try to find out more information through admissions or the Southeast Asian Business Association. Information on student clubs can be found here: www4.gsb.columbia.edu/cbs-directory/student-groups

    Great video! I was wondering how interactive/resourceful CBS alumni have been in your experience (especially for those trying to tap into the network to switch careers)? Do you find that the alumni network is geographically biased (i.e. NYC) or pretty well represented around the world (I’m particularly interested in working in S.E. Asia). Thanks!

    because the network after college, across continents is as invaluable as peer advising, adv corp fin with prof hodrick, cluster idol and the beer game! #whycbs #proudCBSalum

    Not into twitter – heard about this at a NJ CBS Alumni gathering this week. Great idea and great execution. Proud to be an Alumni.

    Thanks!! you won’t believe how helpful CBS classmates are in helping you out with anything… whether it’s an accounting assignment or tweeting!

    Although students generally take grades seriously as a sign of mastering class material, the student body voted for grade non-disclosure to recruiters (except for students in the top 10%). The reasoning is that this promotes more teamwork and community in the classroom. It also allows students to take courses outside of their area of expertise without worrying about the impact on their GPA.

    Students use a variety of sources to finance bschool – loans, scholarships, fellowships, some students are sponsored by their employer. More information is available here: gsb.columbia.edu/mba/admissions/tuition Please feel free to reach out to the financial aid office with any questions. They will be happy to help.
