Johnson’s residential MBA programs are well underway! One-Year accelerated and Johnson Cornell Tech MBA students have completed their summer core in Ithaca and are beginning fall classes, and our Two-Year MBAs have hit the ground running with their core teams. Johnson Cornell Tech MBAs are now starting coursework on Roosevelt Island in New York City—but we’ve only said “see you later” since many of Johnson’s Ithaca-based MBAs will be taking advantage of NYC curriculum offerings at the Cornell Tech campus throughout the year.

Our classes of 2020 and 2021 enjoyed a whirlwind summer and pre-term activities, including case competitions, Johnson Outdoor Education (JOE), team building events, welcome receptions, events hosted by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year), discussions with Dean Mark Nelson and faculty, and career prep activities and exercises.

Take a look at the highlights below, and learn more about our newest residential MBA students.

After tackling the Leading Teams Case Competition, core teams can handle anything that is thrown their way this semester 👊⠀⠀ Congratulations to our top three teams for all their hard work on the first case competition of their business school experience!⠀ .⠀ The Leading Teams Case Competition puts teams to the test in a time-pressured setting and serves as the capstone for the Leading Teams core curriculum course during pre-term. The competition and class are designed to provide students with training and experience in leading and contributing to high-performing teams, something that employers routinely cite as one of the most sought-after skills in MBA hires.⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #Cornell #CornellMBA #MBA #Leadership #Business #BusinessSchool #CaseCompetition #CoreTeam
