Focusing on the Columbia GSB Executive MBA

The Executive MBA encompasses all the necessary requirements for any directive position in a company. The overall goal is to improve and expand upon the managerial skills of the participating professionals. In this regard the Columbia Business School is a pioneer  in the field of EMBA courses for seasoned professionals whose careers reflect success and leadership potential.

This course is meant to expand a student’s business knowledge within the acumen of their current career track. The school has a reputation for improving its executive education lessons each year, usually by adding three to four new courses.

To understand Columbia’s motto of big picture business and entrepreneurial dreams we have listed a few highlights of the principles they have embraced .

Proficient Curriculum

Students gain a cohesive view of leadership, global business insights and digital business strategies. Captivating lectures, case studies and academic and specialist perspectives are essential elements that envelop the course which ensure the all-round development of students.
