Business Plus

If you are not proficient in English, you can improve your oral communication skills and complete quantitative coursework.

Business Plus will not be offered during Columbia Summer 2020.

In today’s competitive business environment, effective communication is an essential skill. Columbia University’s Business Plus provides students and professionals who are not proficient in English with oral and writing skills alongside a course in science, math, or business. You will improve your ability to communicate more clearly and confidently in professional contexts while gaining knowledge in a quantitative subject area.

Who Should Apply?

Applicants with a TOEFL iBT score between 85 and 99, a minimum SPS/ALP level of 7, a Duolingo score of 110-115, or a minimum IELTS score of 6.5. If you have a higher TOEFL iBT score and you are interested in taking business courses, you may be interested in Business Certification, Business Edge, or Business Practice.
