Study Abroad Transfer Credits

Dr. Sunil Gulati is the study abroad advisor, and he can be contacted by email at skg21@columbia.edu. Students who wish to apply economics courses from study abroad programs towards the economics major or concentration must first consult with Dr. Gulati prior to taking the course(s). Dr. Gulati will assess the course(s) and give preliminary and final approval. Only courses that are given final approval will be applied towards the economics major or concentration.

Faculty Advisors (for Declared Majors only)

Faculty advisors are available only during the academic year. Students may request a personal faculty advisor to discuss academic or career goals. Faculty advisors will not discuss major requirements – that is the role of the graduate student advisors. Faculty advisors will discuss course selection to meet intellectual goals and interests, as well as career or research options. If you plan on attending a PhD program in economics or pursuing economics research after graduation, then it is recommended that you request a faculty advisor.

To request a faculty advisor, please complete the Faculty Advisor Request form online.
