You’ll join a cohort of about 30 students and move through this academically rigorous program together.

You’ll have opportunities to take elective courses across the university, including access to the world-renowned Columbia Business School, School of the Arts, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, School of Social Work, and Medical School.
