Columbia Launches "Immersion Seminar" Series

Seminars to provide opportunities for MBAs to network with C-Suite executives

Columbia Business School has launched a new series of seminars that allow MBAs to network with C-Suite executives.

In the new "Immersion Seminars," students can interact with executives and have candid conversations about business challenges, opportunities, and strategies.

The seminars take advantage of Columbia's New York City location and its proximity to the headquarters of some of the world's biggest companies. “Our students have always enjoyed the benefits that New York City has to offer. They are just a subway ride away from tremendous career opportunities,” according to Glenn Hubbard, dean of Columbia Business School.

Through the new seminars, students can see how the theory they're learning in the MBA program applies to real-world business challenges.

“These immersion seminars students meet with industry executives and see theories taught in the classroom being applied in real-time in the business world," says Hubbard.

In the inaugural seminars, participating firms came from a range of different business areas, including data analytics, management consulting, brand management, financial services, innovation, social media, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Some of the companies involved in the Immersion Seminars include Google, Morgan Stanley, Deloitte, and Tiffany and Company.
