Graduate education and research for the digital age

Integrating technology, business, law and design in service of economic impact and societal good.

Explorations on a Theme

The digital age is making it easier, faster and cheaper to develop new products and services than ever before. Cornell Tech is building a diverse environment of academics and practitioners who excel at imagining, researching and building digitally-enabled products and services to directly address societal and commercial needs, particularly in areas that both draw on and contribute to the vibrancy of New York City.

Cornell Tech's academic environment encourages tight integration across disciplines, couples fundamental research with practice, and supports societal and commercial ventures alongside research and education. In addition to world-class academic work, a distinguishing characteristic of our research is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct societal and commercial impact of our research.

Advertising agencies, architecture firms and other creative organizations have long understood the power of a culture in which ideas are shared and critiqued in an open and collaborative environment. Seeing and discussing the work of your peers can inspire great work of your own. And getting constructive feedback from people whose experience and instincts you trust can help you turn good ideas into great ones. Cornell Tech's Studio culture ensures you'll get the coaching, collaboration and camaraderie you need to thrive.

Our programs and our organization combine the action-orientation of business and the reflective nature of academia. We expect our academic programs to evolve and iterate rapidly, and our faculty and students to pursue startup companies, social ventures, and high-impact partnerships with companies, nonprofits and government agencies. An entrepreneurial mindset is important in any size digital-age company or organization.
