Johnson MBA--Alum Perspective


This review is for Johnson (Cornell)

Program Cornell One Year MBA Program

Class of 2013

Experience during the program

I graduated a few years ago and am most likely getting ready to wrap up my stint as a consultant. Coming in to the program, I was looking for diversity in both student body and experiences. Johnson was perfect for this. Our strengths are notably in IB and consulting; many of my classmates and friends are enjoying successful careers at great firms.

Despite the relatively small size, there's ample opportunity to explore and be a part of various meaningful groups and organizations.

Student body is diverse, extremely smart and motivated, but most importantly fun and supportive. I was in the One year MBA, but have made life-long friends across all the programs.

I would highly recommend Johnson. I've been involved in recruiting and interviewing for my firm this past year, and I would say the talent pool is very strong.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Sometimes integration between 1 and 2 year MBAs isn't fluid. Its highly variable and depends on the class. I would recommend more cross-class interactions and project work to create a more cohesive group at Sage.
