Alumni Testimonials

I am immensely grateful to you for having sent me a letter of recommendation from your esteemed institution which I received last week. I’m sorry that I could not thank you earlier as I was a bit unwell. This letter greatly encourages me to work harder and I’m sure it will be of great help while applying for my under-graduation program in the USA. I once again thank you for the wonderful experience of attending the program conducted by Dan and look forward to more such programs with Columbia Business School in the near future.

In addition to being a dynamic program teaching international pedagogy and giving an IVY league education to students in India, the Summer program differs from others as we also have an exclusive line-up of guest speakers from the industry and corporate India to share their experiences and journey with students and visit to an incubating centre where many young entrepreneurs brain storm and make their dreams a reality. The program is designed to be practical and experiential rather than pure theory and that is our USP.
The class size is limited as there is a rigorous selection process and few students are chosen for the program. Maximum strength is 30. The age of students range from 15 to 18+ years old.
Students have to register through the link provided on the website, and fill in an application form which has an application essay question as well. Based on the answers the professors at CBS select the students to participate in the program and an email is sent out with a confirmation.
The program has tremendous value as a CERTIFICATE of participation is given to all students from Columbia Business School, USA. On final presentation, the best group presentation and best product idea also receive special certification and a PERSONALISED reference letter from a Columbia professor. This in turn CAN be used for college application purposes.
Yes, this program has been successfully training and teaching young high school students around the world since the last few years from Singapore, Dubai, Phillipines, Taiwan, China and India.
Last year it was successfully done in Mumbai and some alumni are happy to talk and interact with students. Please email us your query and we’ll put you in touch with an alumni.
Once the student successfully completes the program, the professor shares his details to keep in touch directly with him and in every successive program; students have an opportunity to become TA’s (Teacher Assistants) for the next batch.
A working laptop is all that is needed to be a part of this program as assignments will be all done on them.
