Another component central to Columbia being perfectly suited to my career objectives is the Eugene Lang center. As my ultimate goal is to start and run my own Investment fund, I require not only top-notch financial training, but also a deeper understanding of Entrepreneurialism and Innovation. Columbia’s Entrepreneurship program hinges upon two distinct principles which are both directly applicable to my ultimate goal of launching an Investment Fund: identifying, valuing, and capturing opportunity, and doing so with individual initiative in the face of high uncertainty and/or tight resources. When I learned that CBS had a dedicated Entrepreneurship center with its focal doctrine to institutionalize, emphasize, and formalize the practice and ideas of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, I became even more certain that CBS is the best place to help me achieve my goals.
