Curriculum

Curriculum breakdown varies across the One-Year MBA, Two-Year MBA, and Johnson Cornell Tech MBA. The One-Year MBA and Tech MBA begin with a 10-week summer core in Ithaca, New York. One-Year MBAs then continue with electives and co-curricular activities in Ithaca, while Tech MBAs take residence at Cornell Tech in New York City.

The One-Year MBA and Tech MBA spans May to May, 12 months.

Students in the Two-Year MBA start their core courses in the fall, complete an immersion in the spring, do an internship in the summer, and spend the remaining fall and spring taking electives and, sometimes, courses or intensives at Cornell Tech. The Two-Year MBA spans 21 months.

Campus Life

Ithaca-Based MBA

Johnson’s One- and Two-Year MBA programs are offered at Cornell University’s main campus in Ithaca, New York. Ithaca is known for its beautiful natural landscape, family-friendly community, and downtown area. Classes are held primarily in Sage Hall and the new Breazzano Family Center for Business Education.

Students can choose to participate in and lead any of 80+ student organizations ranging from the Women’s Management Council to the Black Graduate Student Association, and from the Old Ezra Finance Club to the Johnson Pets Society. They also participate in international treks, leadership expeditions, and case competitions. Johnson offers a unique, “two campus, one community” approach, which allows Ithaca-based residential students to take weekend courses or half-semester intensives at Cornell Tech in NYC. Opportunities for networking are endless.

Johnson’s community is tight knit and small by design (on average: 280 students in each Two-Year MBA class and 70 students in the One-Year MBA class). Johnson students are hard working with impressive academic and professional portfolios, but they are also supportive and willing to lend a hand to their peers. Faculty are accessible and get to know their students, and diversity of culture, thought, and experience is extremely important—Johnson was one of the first top business school to have a dedicated Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Johnson Cornell Tech MBA in NYC

After completing their 10-week summer core at Cornell University in Ithaca, students in the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA program take residence on Roosevelt Island in NYC. Cornell Tech officially opened in September 2017 and is home to seven master’s programs, including the MBA. Students work in interdisciplinary teams and learn from faculty and industry leaders who are well-versed in business and tech. Students generally live in The House, a residential building on Roosevelt Island, and often interact with high-level tech executives during intimate Conversations in Studio. Surrounded by state-of-the-art facilities and immersed in technology, students work with a small cohort to bring ideas to life.

MBA Careers

Johnson’s Career Management Center works with students in the One- and Two-Year MBA programs to craft their resumes, connect with recruiters, and negotiate job offers. Alumni often come back to campus to recruit and mentor students, and students help one another when it comes to recruitment strategies—the environment is far from competitive. While Two-Year MBA students complete an internship, the One-Year MBA program does not include this component.

Students in the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA program benefit from constant interaction with tech companies and startups. They participate in on-campus “blitz interviews” and work with Cornell Tech’s Career Management Center to navigate opportunities and offers within the tech space. Students expand their networks within the tech ecosystem by listening to prospective employers, experienced entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists who come to Cornell Tech for “tech talks” instead of traditional recruiting presentations.
