About Us

Academic Advising and Student Success

The Academic Advising and Student Success team provides guidance on academic resources and coordinates holistic student support by partnering with Counseling and Psychological Services, the Office of Disability Services, and numerous resources at Columbia University. We also partner with the Dean’s Office and the Samberg Institute for Teaching Excellence to improve student experiences and outcomes both inside and outside the classroom.

Records and Registration

The Records and Registration Team is the steward of all MBA student records pertaining to registration, grades, and graduation. Records and Registration also work with the Faculty and Divisions to produce the MBA course schedule.

Student Life and Engagement

The Student Life and Engagement team supports the MBA student experience from the moment students join the CBS community until their final days on campus. The team plans signature events, including New Student Orientation and Graduation, and advises all 80-plus student organizations, Student Government, and Cluster Boards.
