CEO Application Process



  • Applicants must be currently enrolled full-time sophomores or juniors in Columbia College, The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science or the School of General Studies.
  • Applicants must be able to commit to the full program.
  • Students must have a desire to engage in new cultural experiences and be willing to expand their horizons.
  • Once a student has completed a CEO internship, he or she is not eligible to apply to positions in the same city for future summer CEO terms (even with a different employer).  However, he or she is eligible to apply to alternate CEO locations.

STUDENTS WHO ARE STUDYING ABROAD ARE ENCOURAGED TO APPLY. Interviews will be conducted over the phone or Skype.

*Please note, by submitting an application, you authorize the Center for Career Education to conduct academic, disciplinary and financial aid checks to confirm program eligibility and inform funding decisions. Certain University policy violations may disqualify you from consideration for the CEO program.
