And Insights from Columbia

As a Columbia Business School student, you are already a member of the School’s global alumni network. With more than 40, 000 alumni in this worldwide community, interaction between students and alumni can be a dynamic part of your experience during business school and beyond.

Alumni Search

As members of the Columbia Business School network, students can use the Alumni Search to connect with alumni, identify CCN mentors, search for alumni by industry affiliation, or locate alumni in a specific geographic region. This tool can be extremely effective in identifying potential event speakers, mentors, and alumni contacts within your chosen field.

If you encounter a problem acquiring contact information for any graduate, please contact Megan Shaughnessy at If you cannot locate alumni contact information through the Alumni Search but have found it online through other sources (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.), please e-mail so that the School can update its records and provide students with the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Columbia Career Network Program

The Columbia Career Network (CCN) is a program that strengthens the School’s 40, 000-strong global community. It serves as the umbrella identifier for every instance where students have the opportunity to engage with the Columbia Business School network, which encompasses alumni, faculty members, staff, executives in residence, and others who are dedicated to career education of Columbia Business School students.

The CCN connects students with alumni who have identified themselves as mentors. To locate a CCN mentor, use the Alumni Search tool; CCN mentors are identified by the CCN-mentor designation on their entries and will appear at the top of your search results. Industry-based mentoring can help you attain a better understanding of your industry and can lead to a long-term relationship resulting in mutual benefit.

In the Classroom

The School’s own accomplished alumni frequently serve as classroom guest speakers. Faculty members maintain relationships with many former students as part of their commitment to bridging theory and practice in the classroom.


SocNet is the School’s internal social networking platform. Use this online resource to stay connected with your classmates and other members of the School community. You can also use SocNet to connect with alumni.

Student and Alumni Clubs

Students have the opportunity to engage with alumni through events organized by student and alumni clubs; these events occur throughout the year and are held around the world.
