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.
The end of each semester at Columbia Business School (CBS) is marked with CBS Follies—a completely student-run comedy and entertainment show that is performed for the school’s student body, and which, we were informed, has been known to get rather rowdy! CBS Follies made a particularly strong impact back in 2006 with the YouTube hit “Every Breath Bernanke Takes,” which lampooned Dean Glenn Hubbard’s position as runner-up to Ben Bernanke to become chairman of the Federal Reserve.
