Johnson’s One-Year MBA program is 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—about 70 students in the One-Year MBA class. Johnson students are hardworking, 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 schools to have a dedicated Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
