MBA at Cornell Tech

About the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA

The Johnson Cornell Tech MBA is conferred by the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, one of the top 15 business schools in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report.  The program is a one-year, full-time, residential MBA program and is geared towards working professionals who want to spend as little time out of the workforce as possible.

The Johnson Cornell Tech MBA is structured around three experiential pillars: a fourteen-week intensive summer semester in Ithaca, Product Studio in the Fall, and Startup, BigCo, or PiTech Studio in the Spring. The program begins in May at Cornell’s Ithaca campus, where you will complete your core business courses with other Johnson MBA students.  

In August, you will arrive at Cornell Tech and begin Studio. During Product Studio, you will collaborate with a multidisciplinary, cross-functional group of Cornell Tech classmates to develop a technology-driven solution to a strategic business need of a real client.

In January, for your final semester, you will apply your knowledge from Product Studio and team-working skills to develop a new business idea from concept to launch during Startup, BigCo, or PiTech Studio.
