Seeking Columbia MBA Information
I'm exactly 1 year away from applying to Columbia's MBA program and was looking for help from those admitted, attending, or have attended this program. If you have any hints, tips that really helped you please let me know.
Last week I attended their "Spotlight On: Marketing" lecture where they inform prospective MBA students about their marketing curriculum. I want to change careers and go into brand management. One of their professors and 3 of their alumni were speaking about their experiences. One student currently has a brand management internship w/ a HUGE CPG company and I know that the connections and network Columbia offers are incomparable.
If anyone else could weigh in that would be great. I'm currently living in NYC, and attending Fordham's Pre-MBA program to prove my quant abilities at the MBA level (taking 3 MBA-level courses). In addition to Columbia, I plan to apply to Fordham, NYU, Georgetown, Baruch, American, St. John's, Hofstra, and UCI but would like to know from alumni, current students what sets CBS apart from others, and how I can set myself apart from other candidates.
Thanks in advance!
