This review is for Cornell Johnson
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
Overall, Johnson is a great school. However, the experience can vary depending on the career choice. This should be the main consideration. There are many recruiting options for IB, Consulting,, Marketing, Finance. Significantly less opportunities for Asset Management and Tech. The latter is partially the function of an industry where there are no structural recruiting processes and much of recruiting is just in time.
Student body has interesting backgrounds, down to earth personalities. The culture is very collaborative.
Curriculum is rigorous and can be great or not so great depending on recruiting schedule and background.
Lots of advantages from the wider Cornell network (classes, facilities, alumni)
Asset Management is tough. Alumni can be helpful but opportunities are scarce. Need to do a lot of individual work.
Preparation could be improved as well for investment management jobs.
