【2018年9月入学用出願締め切り日】 Columbia Business School

Columbia Business Schoolの出願締め切り日が発表されました。

・Regular Decision Deadline: April 11, 2018

2018 J-TERM
・Application Deadline: October 4, 2017

Students may enroll in either August or January. The CBS admissions website notes that the paths are identical in terms of competitiveness of admissions, academic rigor, and student resources, but they differ in terms of timing and the opportunity to complete a summer internship.

The August entry has two review periods — early decision and regular decision. Because CBS uses a rolling admissions process, it is always to your advantage to apply well before the deadline.

【MBA 2016年入学用 推薦状課題】Columbia

Recommendations
エッセイ課題への回答を通じて表現したい自分の側面、そして推薦者の視点から語っていただく側面の仕分けも含めて、この時期から職業キャリアの棚卸し作業を進めていきましょう。
自らのアピール部分を的確に把握してもらうためにも、下記の課題内容にも記されているSpecific Examplesは欠かせませんので、推薦者となる方々ともその点を共有していきましょう。

http://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/programs-admissions/mba/admissions/application-requirements#6

All first-time applications require two recommendations. Reapplicants are required to submit one new recommendation. If you have been working full-time for at least six months, one recommendation should be from your current supervisor. The second recommendation should be from either a former direct supervisor or from another professional associate, senior to you, who can share their insights on your candidacy.

If you are a college senior or have worked full-time for fewer than six months, at least one, but preferably both, of your recommendations should be from a person who can comment on your managerial abilities. You may ask a summer employer or another person whom you feel can objectively assess your professional promise. The second recommendation may be from a college professor.

Please note that Columbia Business School and several of our peer institutions use similar, if not identical, recommendation questions. This is an effort on our part to make the process easier for your recommenders. We expect that you, the applicant, will not participate in the drafting of these recommendations. Applications are not considered complete until all required information is submitted. This includes recommendations.

We ask recommenders to consider the following guidelines when writing their recommendations (recommended limit – 1000 words):

  • How do the candidate’s performance, potential, background, or personal qualities compare to those of other well-qualified individuals in similar roles? Please provide specific examples.
  • Please describe the most important piece of constructive feedback you have given the applicant. Please detail the circumstances and the applicant’s response.

Please be aware: The Admissions Committee requires that all application materials be submitted online, including recommendations.

学部長のインタビュー(Columbia Univ. Law School)

Columbia University, Law Schoolに着任した新学部長のインタビュー記事が掲載されています。
カリキュラムの編成等に関するトピックは、来年度以降のカリキュラム内容に影響が及ぶ可能性を残します。
学校リサーチを行う上では、こうした記事にも注目していきましょう。
http://chronicle.com/article/New-Dean-Asks-More-of-a/229253?cid=megamenu

<<以下、記事からの抜粋箇所です>
Among those priorities, she says, are tweaking the curriculum to help students see themselves as “global actors” and as entrepreneurs who can intentionally craft a career that, over time, spans the private and public sectors. Ms. Lester also wants to forge stronger ties between alumni and current students and maintain “people’s pride about this community.”

Students at Columbia Law School are already talented, “so the question is what do we do to make them the best version of themselves,” Ms. Lester says. “I talk to our students about taking full advantage of their three years here, to not just ask what the law is, but what the law ought to be.”
