WACE: Lecture plus Networkng

RSVP Today Please!


The 2017 Worldwide Alumni Club Event (WACE) is scheduled to take place on or around Wednesday, September 27. The event is a celebration of the diverse and dynamic worldwide Columbia Business School network—alumni clubs from around the world will host events throughout September to celebrate the School’s global community.


In 2016, Columbia Business School alumni gathered in more than 50 clubs worldwide for this annual celebration. The wide variety of planned programming included social events such as a golf outing, a harbor cruise, and a wine and cheese reception. A number of our clubs hosted events featuring guest speakers on topics ranging from art collecting to aerospace engineering.
