I'm curious to know how the Cornell Tech MBA rankings align with the statistics published for the Johnson MBA in the variety of rankings and listings that are published.

This program sounds like it would be right up my alley and I"m interested in applying but I'm a bit wary of the implications of applying to a new sort of experimental program. Also, being on a satellite campus sounds like it wouldn't afford me the opportunities to branch out into other disciplines for my electives. I'm very interested in learning German for example, would there be a language elective option at the Tech campus?

Can anyone shed any light on job placement, starting salary, diversity, and previous industry information of current students and alumni of the Cornell Tech program. The website has some pretty informative first person interviews from some of the graduates but is there a broader set of statistics to help me align with those that are available for Sloan, Haas, Stanford, Tepper, Columbia and other strong MBA Technology programs?

Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

Let me start by saying upfront that I'm an alum of the first MBA class at Cornell Tech.

Cornell Tech MBA students have the best of both worlds - the network of Johnson and Cornell, and yet the ability to shape a brand new program. I cannot speak to the comparison of statistics, but I can say that the Cornell Tech programs attract a slightly different interest set. Most of the interesting statistics I can tell you are about post-graduation success...and, there has only been one class that's graduated. I think some of the general statistics that you are used to would be a bit difficult to share, as there has really only been n=39 graduated.

I can tell you that I applied and matriculated specifically because it was an new/experimental program. Note that, however, it's experimental in its additions to the MBA curriculum (like a co-curriculum with M.Eng. students building start-ups led by the former CTO of Twitter and the co-founder of NY Tech Stars). The underlying MBA core curriculum comes directly from Johnson, mostly at the main campus. I think that's an important distinction.

To directly answer some of your questions - yes, that means that the electives are more limited in focus (a good portion of that time is used by the aforementioned experimental parts of the program). In fact, a good portion of the curriculum is "lock-step" together. By the way, these elective options are growing year to year (for example, there is a lot more access to CS classes this year for MBAs). No, I doubt there would be any way to pursue German as part of your MBA. (But, you could also buy Rosetta Stone?)

I'd be happy to talk to you about the successes of my fellow 38 classmates, but I'm reluctant to post a lot of their information here. I'm very proud of where my class is today though! Perhaps we could chat if you want more information - send me a note.
