Connections and Cooperating Institutions
The Klingenstein Center is part of Columbia University's Teachers College
, the first graduate school of education in the United States. Klingenstein Center students have access to all the resources of Teachers College and Columbia University including over 20 libraries, the fitness center and cross-registration in courses at other Columbia graduate schools. The Klingenstein Center recruits professors from Columbia Law School to teach courses in education law and in negotiation. The Center is also currently partnering with Columbia University to develop a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled "What Every Teacher Needs to Know About the Science of Learning" on edX as part of the White House's ConnectED initiative
Attending INSEAD in either Singapore or France is one of the business school options for the MA/MBA dual degree program. INSEAD's MBA was rated as having the highest return-on-investment in the world and the school is known for a focus on diversity and innovation. An MBA from INSEAD requires a year of full-time, on-campus study. Klingenstein dual degree students receive a tuition discount at INSEAD.
Columbia Business School
Another option for the MA/MBA program is Columbia Business School (CBS). CBS is located on the main campus of Columbia University, across the street from the Klingenstein Center. In 2015, CBS celebrated its centennial under the theme "100 Years of Innovation." Dual degree student who choose CBS are able to complete their MBA in 3 semesters in one year instead of across two years. The Klingenstein Center is currently partnering with CBS's Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center on a new course for the full-year and two-summers master's degree programs.
