Hello,

I’m interested in pivoting into non-technical product management post-MBA, and I’m having a hard time deciding whether Johnson or Stern would be better for long-term outcomes.

Things I care about:
1. Job placement (immediate post-MBA as well as long-term)
2. Strength of alumni network (both in terms of responsiveness/willingness to help grads and positioning in industry)
3. Community

I’m leaning towards Johnson for the community aspect, since I’ve found that the remote opt-in type of experience often fosters a more close-knit student body.

I’m curious to hear how you guys feel about the two schools for the other aspects. For example, NYU lacks the Ivy League branding of Cornell, but Stern is usually higher ranked and more well known than Johnson - I’m curious how that would play out in terms of reputation/job-placement. I’m assuming that Johnson might have a more engaged alumni base because it has that small school setting, but maybe the alumni are not as well-placed as Stern’s. I’ve also heard that students at top 20 schools are usually accepted at similar rates to top companies like Amazon and Google, e.g. it’s not like only HBS students will get those opportunities, the offers are spread out among the top 20 schools. In that case, would it actually be easier to get that prestigious first job at a “less-competitive” school?

Academically, I also feel like the schools prepare you equally well since Johnson has immersions and the Cornell Tech campus and Stern has tons of experiential opportunities and tech-focused classes.

Let me know your thoughts!

Stern it is... Cornell is not known for its business school, I mean, just like you don’t go to Yale for MBA, you don’t go to Cornell for MBA either.
