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 2012, the Fall Ball had a “roaring twenties” theme and was held at Pier Sixty. In 2011, these two parties were held at Espace and Cipriani Wall Street, respectively.
