About Columbia Business School Executive Education
Founded in 1916, Columbia Business School is committed to educating and developing leaders and builders of enterprises who create value for their stakeholders and society at large. We are equally committed to developing new scholars and teachers, and to creating and disseminating pathbreaking knowledge, concepts, and tools which advance the understanding and practice of management.
Started in 1951, Columbia Business School Executive Education extends the reach of the Business School to business leaders and managers seeking to sharpen or develop their skills in areas of leadership, strategy, finance, marketing, social enterprise, and talent management.
Our online programs provide flexible options for accessing the thought leadership of our acclaimed faculty members and industry experts- outside of a classroom or conference center.
Online or digital learning is, at heart, not a substitute for classroom teaching, a second-best pedagogy, or a way to scale what takes place remotely. It is a totally different approach to teaching and learning, that provides new channels, tools, and techniques for reaching learners in individual ways.
Impactful learning – whether it is classroom-based or device-based – occurs on the individual level first then, if it is effective, inspires ripples of transformation beyond the learner to the peers the learner interacts with, the teams the learner leads, and the organizations at which the learner is employed.
Each learner engages with the content individually, decides how that content is relevant, how that relevance can be put to use within an organization, and how it can be shared and strengthened by others.
Online or e-learning is a medium that offers so much promise for the development of individuals, by tapping into the potential of each learner, at the right pace, right depth, and right relevance.
The capability to empower individual learning one by one, one to one, and one to many-is the overarching intent of online programs at Columbia Business School Executive Education.
Learning for individual growth and organizational impact are what motivate us, and we strive for excellence in creating and delivering purposeful learning experiences both in the classroom and online.
