I was able to translate my interest in technology to an exciting role at a leading Silicon Valley company. Columbia played an integral role in preparing me for my internship, which eventually led to a full-time offer. I can’t wait to start and leverage both the skills I learned in the military and the skills I gained as a student at CBS.

We consistently place veterans in top firms across the following industries:

  • Real Estate
  • Investment Banking
  • Management Consulting
  • Retail & Fashion
  • Non-Profit
  • Government
  • General Management
  • Energy
  • Technology
  • Marketing
  • Entrepreneurship
  • and many more...

With so many employment options to choose from, students can become overwhelmed in the recruitment process. Columbia gave me the opportunity to test investment banking as a summer intern. I ultimately decided that a product management role at a leading internet retailer was a better fit — and that is where I’ll work after I graduate.

It was great to use the internship to learn about an industry I was interested in - and Columbia enabled me to access the most competitive jobs (full-time and internships) sought by MBA students across the country.
