Updated Jan 26, 2022
Columbia Business School Executive Education will resume on-campus programs starting February 2022. Based on guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as university, government, and health entities, we have carefully established protocols designed to promote a healthy environment for our faculty, staff, participants, and visitors.
The current protocols require participants in our classroom programs to be fully vaccinated and boosted. Additionally, all participants must provide proof of a negative US-based PCR test within 72 hours of the program's scheduled start date. To view our suggestions on testing locations, visit our COVID-19 Testing Guide. Currently, everyone on campus is required to wear a mask in all indoor and public places on campus. For a full list of requirements for vaccination and visitation, please view our Columbia Business School COVID-19 Policy Agreement.
We will continue to monitor all CDC guidelines and the protocols and requirements may be adjusted if conditions change. Please review this page and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) before your arrival on campus so you have the most current information. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.

A participant will need to provide proof of vaccination and a booster, plus proof of a negative US-based PCR test taken within 72 hours of the program's scheduled start date.
Which vaccines are acceptable?
All vaccinations that have been approved by the CDC are acceptable. The final shot of the vaccination series must have been completed at least two weeks prior to arrival.

What are the requirements for testing if I am unvaccinated or chose not to provide vaccination status?
In addition to our University faculty, staff, and students, all participants of our Executive Education programs must be both vaccinated and boosted. Columbia Business School also requires participants to provide proof of a negative US-based PCR test taken within 72 hours of the program’s scheduled start date. The participant is responsible for the cost of this test. Any positive test result will prohibit the participant from attending the program.
Which tests are acceptable?
Participants must submit a negative US-based PCR test. A participant with a positive COVID-19 test prior to arrival on campus will not be permitted to attend the program. Any additional expenses incurred due to a positive test are the sole responsibility of the individual.
