Johnson is a hugely collaborative community and my experiences here have been essential to my development as a leader and achieving both my dream internship and full-time position. The support here through faculty, students, alumni and the career management center is shockingly good.
The community is great. I know many of my classmates well, and I feel comfortable approaching those I don't know that well for any needs I might have. I had positive experiences with classmates offering me help without me asking for it.
Johnson nails it when it comes to an MBA program; the class is the right size, the resources and connections are unsurpassed, the program is relevant and well structured and the environment encourages collaboration and leadership development.
The only negative about Johnson was that Ithaca is itself a remote destination. While that helped engender camaraderie, and a real dedication to our studies, after 2 years I am ready to depart Ithaca.
There's a real sense of collaboration and mutual respect amongst the classmates. While I've learned an immense amount from the courses, I have learned even more from my peers.
The location can sometimes be a challenge when travel for interviews, conferences or case competitions is required. It’s great to be in this vibrant, unique college town, but there are times when it can also be challenging.
The best thing about Johnson was the community. All of my classmates were not only incredibly smart and accomplished, but also went out of their way to help me with anything I ever needed.
It would have been nice if we were encouraged a little more to leverage the academics of the entire university and the expertise of the student body, as opposed to spending so much time in our building.
At first glance, many potential applicants may be wary of spending one or two years in small-town Ithaca, NY. However, the fact that Johnson students are more-or-less isolated from major city life helps to foster a much more collaborative community environment than you might find at other schools. It’s true that the winters in Ithaca can be bitterly cold. You won’t find your favorite upscale chain restaurants or a chic nightlife scene. What you will find is a profound opportunity to not only network with your classmates, but to build meaningful, lasting relationships with them. Johnson students socialize outside of class by hosting community dinners, getting together for hikes, snowboarding, kayaking, pub crawls, house parties, poker nights, lake cruises, and sports. During my first year, I had nowhere to go for Thanksgiving, so a classmate invited me to celebrate the holiday with him at his family’s house in Philadelphia. I can’t speak for previous Johnson classes, but the fact is, the class I was fortunate enough to be a part of didn’t just study and recruit together, we also liked each other very much and enjoyed spending time together.
The community at Johnson is very inclusive and helpful.
