Columbia Names New Admissions Head

Columbia’s Assistant Dean for MBA Admissions Amanda Carlson

Less than a week after news reports about an unusual 19% plunge in MBA applications, Columbia Business School today (Sept. 5) announced a new assistant dean for admissions.

Amanda Carlson, currently an executive MBA student in one of Columbia’s EMBA programs, will become assistant dean of admissions, succeeding Mary Miller. She will oversee the admissions department of the MBA and Executive MBA programs at the School.

Carlson joined Columbia Business School in 2002 and most recently served as director of admissions. Prior to joining Columbia, Carlson worked in campus recruiting for McKinsey & Company. She has served on the board of the Forte Foundation and as a member of the Graduate Management Admissions Council’s (GMAC) annual conference advisory committee.

Carlson follows former assistant dean of admissions Miller, who is now program director for EMBA-Global Asia, a joint program offered by the University of Hong Kong, London Business School, and Columbia Business School.

“Mary’s many contributions to the School and to the recruitment of our highly qualified student body have been impressive, and she will be missed,” said Dean Glenn Hubbard in a statement. “Mary and Amanda worked closely together on our admissions strategy, and with Amanda’s expertise in admissions, we are confident that she will continue the great work already underway and be a strong leader for our terrific admissions team.”

Ms. Carlson holds a bachelor’s degree in religion from Princeton University, a master’s degree in organizational psychology from Teachers College at Columbia University, and will soon begin her final semester in the School’s EMBA-Global Asia Program.
