Cornell Johnson


This review is for Johnson (Cornell)

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

In overall, the program is good. Professors are top-notch, but competition is fierce as is expected in any top business school. It is really hard to get A's. You work too much on your class commitments and this alone hampers students' efforts towards recruiting.

Career Center is not as good. They are not very helpful even if the school size is not that much. I do not believe any member of career center has ever found any student something tangible.

Some companies such as FB, MSFT, Airbnb do not come to campus. Almost all IB companies come.

Make a wise selection, I would not have selected Cornell if I had been accepted by HBS and Stanford, even MIT and Berkeley. If you are not a US Citizen, you will not get any scholarships, however some other top schools at the caliber of Cornell provide such scholarships: Tuck, Darden are some of them.

Alumni are willing to help, but I do not believe that they will beat those of Tuck :)
