"It has great teachers and teaches skills well. It focuses a little too much on grades then on career help."

"My experience at the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, thus far, has been very positive. The two-year program is well organized, academically rigorous, and provides a purposeful balance between team assignments and individual coursework. Further, the summer-internship recruiting process provides the necessary tools and preparation for students with unmatched access to top employers on a global scale."

The academic curriculum is both rigorous and relevant and specifically tailored to ensure that First Year students are adequately prepared for their summer internship and post-graduate professional endeavors. Overall, I have been exceptionally pleased and impressed with Cornell's business-school program."

"Great school for an MBA. It is a top 10 MBA with all the resources you might need. Consider the fact that is somewhat located out of a major city thus recruitment adds up to the costs."

"Johnson has a very collaborative environment, the small size of the class and various social activities ensure that you get to know your classmates well. The classes have been hard and demanding but very case oriented and constantly review current news. Many recruiters come to campus, we have constant coaching for interviews and there are a large offer of leadership and managerial skills programs. Ithaca is a beautiful town and has a low cost of living, the downside would be the lack of proximity to larger cities and the high expenses of travel."

"Pros: Johnson's smaller class size allows for stronger connections to be formed within the class. Everyone is super friendly, collaborative, and supportive - as one would expect by individuals who are willing to brave Ithaca's fierce and stubborn winters for 2 consecutive years. Unlike schools in large metropolitan areas, Johnson classmates do not scatter once classes adjourn. The quality of the education and professors are top-notch, and the Core pacing keeps us so busy that I feel like I can take on the world after the program is completed! Cons: The smaller class size also has its detriments; namely, resulting in lesser connections and a smaller alumni base. Johnson does not have as much representation on the west coast and tech industry. Lastly, Ithaca is extremely hilly which doesn't make for ideal walking conditions."

"The full-time MBA program at Cornell University is a very respected one. It provides a rigorous curriculum and access to a huge network from the university. Students are driven and push themselves harder everytime while also helping each other. The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) is very engaged with very respected and structured programs, such as The Consortium, NSHMBA, and NBMBAA among others to support and promote diversity in the school as well as in the workplace."
