New App Aims to Keep CBS Alumni Connected
MyCBS offers alumni directory, job listings, School news, and more.
CBS has launched a new app and online community platform designed to help alumni strengthen their network, access the latest in thought leadership, and stay connected to the Business School. With a robust set of features, MyCBS serves as a one-stop shop for alumni.
Unveiled this fall, MyCBS offers a searchable directory of alumni as well as links to job postings. It allows users to find nearby CBS events that offer lifelong learning and other opportunities to network with alumni. The app will also include everything from news and information from regional clubs and affinity groups to updates from Columbia Business School’s centers and programs.
In the coming months, the platform will begin including students, further expanding MyCBS as a resource for the community. You can learn more about MyCBS and become a member here.
On Campus, Inside The Classroom
Management Professor Dan Wang teaches his Strategy Formulation course—in person and virtually. The Business School moved to a HyFlex teaching model in the fall, allowing small groups of students to attend class in person while the rest log in on Zoom. The groups rotate, so every student who wants to has a chance to mask up and experience class in Uris Hall.
