Beyond the MBA Classroom: Fall Ball & Spring Fling at Columbia Business School

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Twice a year, students at Columbia Business School (CBS)—and their partners or dates—dress up for the Fall Ball and Spring Fling formal parties. The events feature a full dinner, open bar, and a DJ and are open to both first years and second years. In 2011, these parties were held at Metropolitan Pavilion and Cipriani Wall Street, respectively.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at CBS and 14 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
