Please find the curriculum for the incoming class of MSBA students below. For the Fall '19 MSBA Class, please refer to the curriculum page here.

The MSBA program is a three-semester STEM program which can be completed in a single calendar year. Students enter in the Fall term and can finish as soon as the following August, or engage in a summer internship to complete the program by the end of the following Fall.  Students are required to take the equivalent of 12 three-credit courses (36 credits), in the following areas:

  •  a minimum of 18 credits (typically 6 courses) within Columbia Engineering, IEOR Department
  •  a minimum 12 credits (typically 4-6 courses) within the Columbia Business School
  •  and the remaining courses (if any) can be taken from Columbia’s other graduate schools including: the School of International and Public Affairs, the Law School, or Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

A program plan will be available for students to use to plan their studies. This program plan will be used to facilitate a dialogue with your designated faculty advisor. For more course information, students can check out the IEOR course listing.
