We organize social, networking and mentoring opportunities within the
Greater Asian community at Columbia, which includes the other graduate
schools on campus, with Alumni and with the Asian community in New
York. ABA collaborates with organizations such as the Greater China
Society, Japan Business Association, Korean Business Association, and
South Asian Business Association at CBS to increase community cohesion.
One of our most well known events is our annual Hong Kong study trip
where we meet banks, consulting firms, other potential Asian recruiters
and our alumnus. This week long trip occurs in the Fall semester. The
purpose of the trip is to provide career networking, social and
mentoring resources for MBA students who have strong interests in
exploring career opportunities in Asia.
Throughout the year we organize various professional development,
career and lifestyle oriented panels and speakers targeted for
individuals who have an interest in Asian business issues and career
opportunities in Asia or anywhere in the world. We continuously look
for opportunities to leverage Columbia’s vast resources via the
Alumni networks, the Business school and SIPA to provide our members
with specific knowledge of the Asian market and environment.
