Columbia Business School is one of the most well-renowned graduate business schools in the world, so it is unsurprising that they have a large catalogue of postgraduate study opportunities, including MBAs and business masters.

Their full-time MBA program is incredibly competitive, with a 15 percent application acceptance rate. It takes between 16 and 20 months to complete, and is based in their New York campus, although there are international elective options. Post-graduation, 92% of students are employed within three months, with a median salary of US$125,000 three years after graduation.

Columbia also offers a part-time executive MBA program for working professionals. The EMBA takes between 20 and 24 months to complete and classes can be taken either on a weekend basis or in a block format.

The school also offers three highly ranked business masters programs: MS in Accounting and Fundamental Analysis, MS in Financial Economics, and MS in Marketing Science. The Master of Science programs are aimed at candidates who want a more specialised study in a particular focus area than is offered by an MBA program but in a shorter format than a Doctoral Program.
