Executive Education Program Application

Application Deadline

There is no application deadline and applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. However, applicants are encouraged to submit their application at least two weeks prior to the start date of the module during which they would like to commence taking courses. This allows sufficient time for EICES staff to review the application and make an admission decision, for Columbia University to set up a student account, and course registration.

Application Process

Completed applications may be submitted electronically (online or via email), faxed, or mailed to EICES. Applicants are encouraged to use the online application system to submit their application materials and pay the application fee.

Completed PDF applications may be emailed to eices@columbia.edu, faxed to 212-854-0640, or mailed to:

EICES Program Admissions
Schermerhorn Extension MC 5556
