Columbia Business School (CBS) was established in 1916 by the trustees of Columbia University with a generous supporting gift from Emerson McMillin, founder of E. McMillin & Company, a New York bank. The School, which was founded to provide business training and professional preparation for undergraduate and graduate students, launched with 11 full-time faculty members and an inaugural class of 61 students, including eight women.
In 1945, Columbia Business School authorized the awarding of the master of business administration degree (MBA). Shortly thereafter, the School adopted the Hermes emblem as its symbol, chosen because of the Greek god’s association with business, commerce and communication.
Campus of Columbia Business School -
Columbia Business School is primarily housed in Uris Hall, a recently renovated 1960s structure at the center of Columbia's Morning side Heights campus. An auxiliary space, Warren Hall, is situated on Amsterdam Avenue and is shared with the law school. By 2015, the school will be moved to a new, more spacious facility at Columbia's planned new campus on 125th Street in Manhattanville.
