Cornell Johnson Full-Time MBA
5.0 of 5 stars
Extremely strong alumni network; makes job recruiting tough only because of the overwhelming number of options available to students; particularly strong in NYC for aspiring investment bankers, consultants, and tech folks
Investment Banking Immersion rigorously prepares students for summer internships, leading to a higher conversation rate (% who convert summer internships into full time offers) than any other MBA program
Consultants, SGE, Gen Mgmt, etc. also have first year immersions that serve the same function
Tight-knit student body; high quality of life in Ithaca, NY
Very strong diversity communities, e.g. military veterans, latino, lgbt, etc.
Cold Winters in Upstate NY.
Competitive academically, but the collaborative culture generate overcomes this.
Study for GMAT, a necessary evil, far in advance of deadlines (for all schools)
Relax & be yourself during interview
Get to know current students, especially those whose career goals align with your own so they can steer you in the right direction early on re: recruiting, etc.
