Filling a Gap with Cornell’s New Tech MBA [#permalink] New post 02 Jan 2014, 19:27
Expert's post
In Tuesday’s post, we took a look at how the top business schools may not be preparing MBA students with the IT skills they’ll need to manage tomorrow’s companies. That won’t be the case with participants enrolled in a new one-year tech MBA program offered by Cornell University’s Johnson School which is designed to bridge the gap between management and tech skills.

http://www.stacyblackman.com/2013/12/19 ... -tech-mba/

According to the school, students enrolled in the MBA program at Cornell NYC Tech are immersed in New York City’s tech ecosystem, where they’ll continuously work on projects with global business and startup ventures. Participants complete course work in the foundational disciplines of business, with an emphasis on the skills and knowledge needed to create business value in the digital economy.

Courses will include design thinking, global venturing, leading innovation, big data opportunities, and managing technology disruptions, among others. “The goal is to produce leaders for the digital economy,” Doug Stayman, the associate dean of MBA programs at Johnson, tells Business Insider. Startups may not feel comfortable hiring the average MBA, fearing that his or her skills aren’t suited for the culture and work of their companies.

“Organizations desperately need people who are true leaders but also understand the business needs and the technical needs,” Stayman adds.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Cornell consulted with startups and tech companies such as LinkedIn Corp. and Deloitte Services LP for advice on what to teach. By asking employers about the skill sets they need but are having trouble finding, Stayman tells the WSJ the proposed curriculum will include courses on software development, and leadership instruction will have a special focus on persuasion.

Graduates of the MBA at Cornell Tech aren’t meant to work exclusively for startups though. Stayman envisions the certification as a way to help the business-minded cross into tech, as well as give students an inroad to traditional management jobs.

Applicants to the program, which is expected to run in the low $90,000s, must hold a degree in science or technology, have three to five years of relevant work experience, and submit GRE or GMAT scores.

Soumitra Dutta, dean of Johnson, explained the degree this way when announcing it last summer: “We’re creating a program that addresses the fact that technology has changed the way business is done. It’s not about adding technology courses to an existing MBA, but about developing a new education and learning experience for business leaders in the digital economy.”

Really not sure about the range...I believe its their first batch of students and they would ideally look into the overall profile rather than being stuck on GMAT score range..Because possibility having a great profile beyond GMAT/GRE score is huge......

Whats your background btw and your GMAT score....

I met some of the admitted students. It seems like they really like people who have started successful tech businesses. I think it's a great program for someone really passionate about the New York startup tech scene, since that is a huge focus of the program (you'd be working with NYC tech startups the whole year). It wasn't the right fit for me, but I respect what they're doing.

I don't think a GMAT score will get you into this program. It's really about fitting into their mission and showing your success or potential in relation to it.

That's a good piece of information....But i wonder if these guys already started a tech business, why are the planning to do this course and be out of their venture for one whole year........

Would anyone know how many have been accepted already.......

Also, any idea on loan . Do banks out there give loan (100%) for this new course based on the Cornell Tech as a brand.....Any views or information on this?
