Johnson has great potential still falls short in some areas

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by membership [?]

This review is for Cornell Johnson

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

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)

About job placement process

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.
