For more than 100 years, Columbia Business School has been preparing visionary leaders who anticipate, innovate, and thrive in an ever-evolving business world. The move to Henry R. Kravis Hall and David Geffen Hall on the Manhattanville campus expands on our mission, allowing the School to educate more students, embrace more alumni, elevate faculty research and scholarship, engage new thought leaders and practitioners, and strengthen partnerships within the University and the city and throughout the business world.
The bold, one-of-a-kind design of our Kravis and Geffen Halls and the Manhattanville campus itself disrupts academic convention and redefines modern pedagogy with open, innovative, collaborative space that encourages interaction and engagement, both intentional and serendipitous, among all Business School stakeholders—students, faculty, staff, alumni, practitioners, and the broader business community.
The result is a living ecosystem that fosters the most vibrant and valuable business school experience anywhere.
