Johnson makes it a point to really stress working in teams and does so by randomly assigning core teams that are very diverse for our first semester on campus. They have quality faculty that care about their students and they have established a culture that really feels like a community. They are able to do this while still having excellent academics and job placement opportunities.
I think due to its proximity from NYC, Cornell is a little isolated and thus difficult to recruit from. I think it needs to leverage the surrounding graduate schools (engineering, tech, healthcare, hotel) to generate greater demand and stronger, more well rounded graduates.
The small size and access to alumni and professors makes my school unique. The alumni are very supportive and encourage current students to reach out to them for career advice and assistance. At a small school you are really able to get to know professors and work with them in your areas of interest.
The school should try to recruit a more diverse class, especially increasing the quota from Europe and Latin America (i.e. people actually from those regions, not only second or third generation from the US).
I think Johnson is the perfect program to get access to Wall Street while studying outside, but close, to New York City. The Johnson alumni on Wall Street are very helpful in placing MBA students at their firms.
Johnson is a phenomenal school but we are good at a lot of things as opposed to great in any one particular area. I would like to see us focus in one or two key areas and build towering strengths
Johnson's community is small and welcoming. Not once, during my two years here did I ever feel like just a number. It was obvious to me that faculty and administration were dedicated to my success.
Due to the location of the school, some companies are not currently participating in the on campus career placement program. If this can somehow be made possible, the recruitment process would be much more efficient.
Cornell's campus is breathtaking and the mix of colleges on campus offers a incredible variety of classes. I’m interested in real estate and i can take classes from the no.1 school in hospitality, as well as top tiered architecture, planning and law schools. the curriculum allowed me the opportunity to take over 15 credits outside of the MBA program. Its location creates a very strong community that sticks together even after graduation.
Johnson would benefit from making it easier to get to and from New York City on the weekends. This would help with recruiting and attract more talented students away from Stern and Columbia.
The community of students and professors at JGSM creates an unbelievable experience for the MBA classes. Ithaca puts us close enough to NYC to be relevant, but far enough from its distractions to be forced to forge real relationships with our peers and professors. The spirit of community and togetherness our classes have is something which I feel gives us an edge about most other top programs. Our students really care about each other and the community.
Johnson does a great job of placing students in traditional MBA career paths such as Consulting, Investment Banking, and Marketing. Johnson could benefit from stronger resources dedicated to helping students interested in breaking into highly sought after career paths such as venture capital and private equity. Finally, more donations from alumni and a larger endowment will certainly go a long way toward improving the school.
The Johnson School is unique because we have a strong culture that is supported by alumni to enhance the learning experience in practical and job applicable ways. Our program teaches skills that are based in the real world and use theory to explain and further deepen our business knowledge.
The NYC Tech campus at Cornell is going to be an amazing addition to the university, as well as an enormous opportunity for Johnson in the space of applied science / technology commercialization. Appropriately connecting the Johnson School with NYCTech will bring the business school "closer" to NYC - and attract great talent for years to come.
Being in a small class in a remote town, you really get to know your fellow students better than you would at larger schools or city campuses. This leads to a positive experience where everyone truly cares about promoting the careers of others. It also leads to a greater focus on teamwork and leadership in academics.
