Dyson School of Applied Economics & Management

The Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University focuses on business and economic issues that are grounded in reality. Dyson’s flexible curriculum is taught by faculty experts in the economics of energy, food, developing economies, and international trade, as well as finance, marketing, accounting, strategy, and entrepreneurship, making Dyson graduates poised to seize the 21st century’s emerging business opportunities. And as members of one of the smallest, most selective 4-year undergraduate business programs in the US, Dyson’s students work closely in a non-cutthroat culture to achieve results.

What Current Students Say See All 10 Comments >

I believe that the Dyson school is unique in its flexibility to study any aspect of business that interests you. I also think that its emphasis on case studies and practical applications makes its courses less theoretical. We are able to specialize in two different business concentrations which makes us a more well rounded candidate for job placement. Furthermore, since the Dyson program is in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences it gives us the opportunity to improve our analytic skills by taking classes in biology, physics, chemistry, calculus, statistics, etc.
