Cornell NYC Tech MBA 1 year program [#permalink] New post 19 Oct 2013, 23:37
Hi,

Have been reading about the tech focused MBA by Cornell in NYC for some time.
Is there anyone who is looking into the pros and cons of this program like I am?

My workex is close to 9 years in IT services and am planning to continue in technology sector.
This course seems to be at the forefront of the digital economy,but i guess 2013 was the first year when it started.

Would be great to get advice from folks here about the program.

If you need more information probably best to reach out to Cornell admissions. I am sure they will be more than willing to tell you about their brand new program. As far as I know, the first intake will actually be 2014.

I think it's really exciting for Cornell and for NYC. Google's involvement with the program gives a lot of credibility too, since Johnson isn't really know for technology related fields like Sloan, Haas or Stanford.

Anyway, the program hasn't taken its first students yet, but your background sounds great for it. I would definitely talk to the folks at Johnson for any of your questions.

In NYC, Cornell is a quite well-respected engineering school. Remember, the program is located in the engineering school, not within Johnson (even though it's called a Johnson MBA and may be administered by Johnson).

I've been thinking about applying, but I'm concerned that the newness of the program might scare away on-campus recruiters. Not sure what to think. Also, I was surprised to see that no recommendations are required in the application.

As per the site's application requirement section - they would look for 3-4 recommendations in the second round. Also, I got a reply from the school when I asked about the apparent focus on the NYC tech startup scene and they responded "the MBA at Cornell NYC Tech will allow the opportunity to interact with large and small tech enterprises and startups". But you are right, I share similar concerns about the program maturity and no current students to talk to about the program. Anyways, choices for a 1yr MBA in top 30 schools are what I am looking for and there are just a handful of programs that fit the bill.

Hi All,

I'm one of the students accepted to the NYC Tech MBA program starting next year, and I'm so excited!

In the spring of 2011, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg embarked on an ambitious agenda to make NYC one of the world’s top-ranked technology hubs. Johnson joins the list of graduate degree programs on the Cornell Tech campus in NYC, as one of the most innovative MBA programs truly unlike any other.

I believe that this is going to be a great program since I'm really keen on technology and innovation.

This program takes performance learning (a pillar of the Johnson experience) to New York City, and immerses you in the city’s flourishing tech ecosystem. You’ll work directly with global businesses and start-up ventures, as well as peers from a variety of backgrounds. You’ll learn how to harness the power of people and technology to create extraordinary results, and will be well prepared to reach your goals — whether they include launching an entrepreneurial venture or advancing into a senior management role.

If you need a student to talk about the application process and what is going on before I can start the program, here I am.

Innovators embrace the novelty :)

Could you please share a little bit about your story? What kind of work did you do before applying, and why did you choose this program? How do you feel about not having an internship? Are you an older candidate?

Looks like there are not many people applying to this program. Is there any other thread where the applicants to this program congregate? could not find one myself.

I am not a current student, but I did interview the dean of the program last fall. Here is a link to the interview: Dr. Douglas Stayman Shares the Scoop on Cornell Tech NYC

Best,

Note: I'm still in the process of deciding which MBA program to attend, but I've been through Cornell Tech's recruiting process and have visited the NYC campus, so I wanted to share my experience - I honestly have nothing but good things to say about the program - if you're interested in entrepreneurship and tech, this is a great MBA option that I highly suggest you to look into:

*Product-focused curriculum/startup studio environment: from what I gathered, students have ample opportunity to work on different startup ideas, build real products and collaborate with graduate students in the technical masters programs
*Access to top entrepreneurs and VCs: while I was there, I attended the weekly "Conversations in the Studio" where the leadership of Cloudflare and a partner from Union Square Ventures came for a Q&A session with the students. I also heard that a founder from Twitter was coming the following week
*Students work with tech companies on projects throughout the year: this is a great substitute for the normal internship process - some of the companies I heard the current students were working with include LinkedIn, eBay and FF Venture Capital
*Top companies are recruiting there: I talked to students who had received PM offers from companies like Amazon and Google, both East and West coast
*Small but close, tight-knit class: the class size is small (40) but the students said they have all become extremely close due to the summer in Ithaca and group projects

It's a one year program, which carries positives and negatives, but if you're someone who is looking for a future in tech, my two cents is there's a lot to say about only being out of industry for one year. The tech industry changes fast and places a lot of value on tangible projects - Cornell Tech will give you a lot of tech-tailored experience in short amount of time. I would not be surprised at all if many clones of this type of program start popping up over the next few years.

I'm happy to answer any questions about my experience, so feel free to message me (future years as well!). Also, the admissions staff is super friendly, so you can also try them (http://tech.cornell.edu/people/staff/).
