Columbia GSB 2017-2018 Application Deadlines

Columbia Business School has announced their application deadlines for students entering in 2018.

Due to their rolling admissions and unique “J-Term” scheduling, Columbia does not do the typical multi-round deadlines. Instead, the school has one deadline for January-entry students (who skip the summer internship and complete their degree in 16 months) and two deadlines for August-entry students.


January 2018 entry application deadline:

Oct. 4, 2017

August 2018 entry application deadline: 

Oct. 4, 2017 (early decision)

April 11, 2018 (regular decision) 

All applications are due by 11:59 P.M. Eastern Time on the day of the deadline. Early decision applicants must sign a commitment statement agreeing to withdraw from all other business school admissions processes if they are admitted. Regular decision applicants have an additional deadline to consider: they must apply by Jan. 5, 2017 in order to be considered for merit-based fellowships.
