Columbia Business School and Berkeley’s Haas School of Business are closing their joint executive MBA program in 2013, Bloomberg Businessweek reports. While the program was originally “about the East Coast meeting the West Coast and Silicon Valley meeting Wall Street,” things have changed over the last 10 years, and “both schools became full-service programs that offered many of the same things to students.”
Current students in the program will continue their classes until graduation and still receive two MBA degrees, one from each school. Prospective students who have been admitted to the program have three options: either join the Columbia Business School EMBA program, the Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program, or defer until the new Berkeley MBA Program for Executives begins in 2013. Alumni will remain in both schools’ alumni networks, continuing to benefit from the events and opportunities provided.
