Pre and Co-Requisites beginning with B8xxx will be enforced. Note: The Finance course Capital Markets & Investments (FINC B8306) is a prerequisite for most finance courses. The following Columbia courses offered outside of the Business School have been approved as equivalent to B8306:

  • IEOR E4721 Global Capital Markets (SEAS)
  • MATH G4076 Capital Markets and Investments (GSAS)
  • INAF U6045 International Capital Markets (SIPA) and INAF U6022 Economics of Finance (SIPA) taken together fulfill the Business School's prerequisite of FINC B8306 Capital Markets & Investments.
  • Note: For Business School courses that list B8306 Capital Markets as a co-requisite, one class (U6045 or U6022) should have been already taken and the other class should be taken concurrently with the B-School class requiring the B8306 Capital markets co-requisite.

All other stated prerequisites have to have been taken at the Business School. Instructors may not waive these prerequisites. Students who feel they have the appropriate background may take the Capital Markets exemption exam during these designated dates. For questions about Exemption Exams (but not general cross-registration questions), please email exemptions@gsb.columbia.edu.

TO DROP A BUSINESS CLASS: You must notify both your home school and the Business School’s Office of Student Affairs (crossreg@gsb.columbia.edu)

Note that Non-Business School students will receive traditional letter grades (A, B, C, D, F) for courses taken at the Business School. Also, the Business School follows a slightly different academic calendar than most of the University. Students should review the School's calendar to ensure they meet required course and exam dates.
