Columbia Business School students join the Small Business Consulting Program in their first year/second year in either of the two rounds: Fall-term projects are from September through March while the Spring-term projects are from January through July. This program is open to both MBA and EMBA students.
Thanks to the program's collaboration with McKinsey & Company, participating students receive extensive training during their projects, both through training workshops and project mentorship. More details will be shared during the program's kick-off presentation every semester.
The best projects, shortlisted by the SBCP club officers, will compete every year in April in front of a panel of Columbia University faculty and consulting practitioners from leading consulting firms. Prizes will be awarded to the top performing teams.
