Students Say

The SC Johnson College of Business at Cornell University taps into the business expertise and global network of faculty, alumni, and partners to offer students access to either a one-year fast track MBA or a standard two-year Full-Time MBA, as well as Executive MBA and dual degree options. Each student takes part in an immersion learning experience during their first year, choosing one area of interest (such as Digital Technology or Sustainable Global Enterprise) in which to engross themselves in electives, site visits, and live cases. This “pick your adventure” curriculum gives students “the room to decide what you want to get out of the business school experience” and the opportunity to craft a two-year path to support that vision. The strong academics mean students “get pushed to go beyond our limits and…enjoy every minute of it because we realize how beneficial it will be for our careers.”

Johnson faculty are “extremely accessible and want the students to succeed.” Many have frequent office hours, and will set up time outside of those to meet individually, and each “actively solicited students to reach out to them for support during the summer to ensure the students internships go well.” In the classroom and immersive experiences they are “connected with what is happening out there in the market and the workplace” and do great work in keeping students up to date on the latest trends. The program may cover a large amount of material, but “it is taught well over a short period of time.”

Students Say

The “international brand name” of Cornell is the biggest boon to students, who will quickly join the tens of thousands of fervently active alumni that help bolster its reputation as a leading business school. Alumni “are always available to answer questions and practice behavioral/case interviews.” The school has “curated an experience that caters not only to those interested in advancing their career, but also for students who want to try something completely new.” All members of the school are extremely responsive to students' needs: they “take what students say into serious consideration” and “openly recognize opportunities [they] can improve and create the systems to do so.”

The connections with the Hotel School and the School of Applied Economics and Management (the other two business colleges) really open up doors to Johnson students interested in those fields; additionally, Johnson has “a particularly strong track record in the areas of investment banking and financial services.” Student life also provides many opportunities to get hands-on experience, including student-run firms such as Big Red Consulting, Big Red Tech Strategy, and the Cayuga Fund.

Students Say

This “tight-knit community” in a “welcoming city” is composed of “eminently inclusive and open” people who are “collaborative to the bone.” “Everyone studies together, cases together, preps together, goes out together,” says one student. Due to the small class size, “everyone is involved in some aspect of the school,” making it “a great place to make a real impact.” Weekly “Sage Socials” provide a great opportunity to know people outside the classroom setting (including faculty, staff, and families), and there “is never a shortage of social events, both planned formally and informally by the students.” Because Ithaca is surrounded by nature, students (and their families) have a variety of options for on weekends, including hiking, sailing, and biking, which creates a “very good balance for students outside of school.”
