The new Voices blog at Columbia Business School recently reminded current and prospective applicants of the many ways Columbia is striving to connect with social media users to share both the student experience as well as insights into the MBA admission process.
Active on both Facebook and Twitter, Columbia has launched some interesting social media initiatives of late. During I<3 Columbia Business School week, first and second-year students made short videos to explain why they love the program, whether it’s because of their interactions with the community, class experiences, or life in New York City. You can see all of the video messages here.
Also, the MBA admissions department began posting “Tuesday Tips” videos leading up to yesterday’s merit fellowship deadline. Here, admissions officers share their expertise on topics ranging from work experience, rolling admissions, and letters of recommendation, and more.
Columbia Business School also hosts Twitter chats throughout the year, where Tweeters can get answers to their pressing admissions questions in real time. But you don’t have to wait for a Twitter chat to get connected. Admissions officer Matthew Moll encourages applicants to reach out anytime on Facebook, Twitter, or on any of the forums Columbia participates in.
