The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center


The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center is at the heart of the Columbia Business School’s mission to educate the next generation of global business leaders.

The Center is one of the many centers and programs that make Columbia Business School such a dynamic place to pursue a graduate business education. The Lang Center’s mission is at the heart of the School’s mission to educate the next generation of global business leaders.

At Columbia Business School, entrepreneurial thinking — in identifying, valuing, and capturing opportunity — is an essential part of all aspects of the academic experience. In courses covering a wide range of subject areas, our faculty members teach students how to identify strategic opportunities.

Entrepreneurship is more than the process of starting a business. It is about identifying, valuing, and capturing opportunities. An entrepreneurial mindset is crucial for all organizations — small or large, new or old, for-profit or not-for-profit. Between our in class curriculum and our out of class events, programs, panels, guest speakers and workshops, the Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center provides students with the tools and education needed to start a business, grow a business or to simply think entrepreneurially. Our programs are meant to instill an entrepreneurial mindset in every student that interacts with Columbia Business School.
