Collaborative Focus

With many opportunities to collaborate across schools, our faculty work and innovate together in targeted disciplines through faculty areas. These are disciplines that are key to any business, and are taught at different course levels by expert faculty in each of our three schools—areas such as finance, marketing, and operations.

Faculty in one academic content area may work together on research, discuss and create more efficient teaching methods, and hold or attend seminars and workshops to deepen their understanding. Areas also allow for coordination across public engagement and industry outreach activities based in disciplines, and provide a greater number of faculty to support specialized programs, like our centers and institutes.

Engaged College Initiative

The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business is the proud inaugural recipient of the Engaged College Initiative block grant from the David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement. Through this grant-funded initiative, the college of business is extending community engagement within each of its three schools. We believe that all students should be empowered to consider critically how the hands-on application of their business education is serving to build a better world.
