Beyond the MBA Classroom: Columbia Business School’s Pre-MBA World Tour

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.

Although Columbia Business School (CBS) does not organize any official pre-term trips for students, the school has recently begun to offer what it calls the Pre-MBA World Tour. Three trips run in parallel throughout June and July, and each includes a visit to five or six countries. Students can join any part of one of these trips, for any period of time that is convenient. The trips are completely organized by students, though CBS encourages and supports the initiative.

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at CBS and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
