Business Edge incorporates project-based study, career-oriented workshops, and guest lectures. Working in teams, students develop a final project on a real-world company.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to analyze and interpret financial statements, understand the fundamentals of finance, develop innovative promotional strategies, and learn how to apply the core concepts of management and organizational theory in the workplace.

Students will receive an official Columbia University Statement of Attendance and will be better prepared to pursue an entrepreneurial path or an MBA.

Taking Business Edge was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I can confidently say that I’ve walked away with the strongest fundamentals in business that I could’ve obtained.”
