Columbia Business School Revamps Core MBA Curriculum

Changes include increased focus on innovation and big data

Columbia Business School has announced that it has redesigned its MBA program's core curriculum starting with first-year students who begin this fall.

Students will now be able to take more electives during their first year, giving them more opportunity to customize the experience and prepare for their summer internships.

The curriculum now features an increased focus on innovation, including an expanded integrated case study component. Additionally, the "Decision Models" course, which covers the use of computer-based models to support managerial decision-making, has been revamped and now features a greater focus on big data.
