COLUMBIA – two-year full-time MBA
Early: October 4, 2019. Deadline: January 3, 2020

The August entry has two review periods — early decision and regular decision. Because we use a rolling admissions process, it is always to your advantage to apply well before the deadline.
- Available for August entry applicants only
- Application deadline in early October
- Early Decision applications are reviewed, and decisions rendered, before Regular Decision applications
- Admitted students for Early Decision are considered for merit-based awards.
- Candidates have decided that Columbia is their first choice and must sign the following statement of commitment within their applications: I am committed to attending Columbia Business School and will withdraw all applications and decline all offers from other schools upon admission to Columbia Business School.
- Applicants must submit a nonrefundable $6,000 tuition deposit within two weeks of admission.
- Candidates may submit Regular Decision applications as soon as the application becomes available in the summer.
- Regular Decision applications are reviewed after Early Decision applications.
- No statement of commitment required.
- To be considered for merit-based fellowships, applications must be submitted by the specified merit-based fellowship deadline in early January
- Final application deadline in April.
Deadline: October 4, 2019
Students who do not want or need an internship may consider beginning their MBA studies in January and completing their second semester of classes during the summer. A January start may be ideal for students who wish to remain in the same industry after graduation or pursue entrepreneurial interests. About 30 percent of our students enter in January.
