The Johnson NYC Intensives are offered jointly to Ithaca-based and Cornell Tech residential MBA students, giving them the opportunity to work together closely and learn from each other. In addition, Ithaca-based students have access to the state-of-the-art resources offered by Cornell Tech and New York City and can choose to spend either half or the entirety of their final semester at our Cornell Tech campus in New York City.

At Johnson, we train leaders to have Competence, Character, Compassion, and Courage. But leadership development can’t be confined to a classroom. You must put what you’re learning into action.

Hi, I wanted to know that if I do not have any volunteer work, does that make my profile very weak?

Can I combine my MBA degree with another degree (law) I am debating between MBA and LLM. Any words of wisdom how to choose
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:08PM
Hi Adva, thank you for joining us today. If you do not have any volunteer experience, this does not make you a weaker candidate. We understand that every applicants situation is different but we hope you're able to demonstrate how you've made an impact in other areas. Such as work experience, etc.

Will the studies be on campus or online?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:10PM
Hi Tommy, thanks for joining us! We do have dual degree options available including a JD/MBA program with the Law School. More information can be found online, https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/dual-degree-programs/jd-mba/. There is a 3 year or 4 year option which I encourage you to look into.
Hi Nir! This fall we will resume in person study. We are very excited about seeing our students.

Hi, A question about military experience effect while applying for an MBA degree. As for myself, an officer serving in the army for the past six years (Captain rank). Through my time in the army, I have both been in operational zones and staff roles, specializing in military intelligence. How is your university admission policy for veterans, having less experience in the labor market?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:15PM
Hi Saar, thank you for the message. Within our admissions process, we value candidates with military experience. We look at ways to see how you have led within your military experience and how you have made an impact. We don't want you to focus on the years of experience but the quality of work is more important.

Thank you! Do you think, considering having six years of service as on officer - that my application was stronger if I had 1-2 years in the job market afterwards?

Will you waive the GMAT score? other schools do
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:19PM
Hi Saar, 1-2 years could make your application stronger depending on the type of work experience.
Hi Amit, great question. We haven't officially made an announcement of our application requirements for the year, but we will be accepting requests to waive the GMAT/GRE. More information surrounding this will be available soon.
Hi Keren, thank you for joining. Here is a link to our website that focuses on entrepreneurship: https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/two-year-mba/curriculum/entrepreneurship/. Yes, we do encourage candidates to work on their ventures while completing the MBA.

Hi! I wanted to ask how do you treat people with ~10 years of experience? Do you recommend such people (if they are good enough) to come to Johnson?

Guest- Ram
6/10 07:26PM
I have done multiple internships which were full time during my bachelor's. Can they be considered as full time work experience?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:27PM
Hi Itay, we welcome those with 10+ years of work experience to apply. One of the things you may want to be prepared to answer is, why is this the right time for you to apply to business school? We do understand everyone's reasoning is different regarding their timing for an MBA.
Hi Ram, you can certainly include this information in your application and we will review it as experience, though it wouldn't be counted in your years of experience as we only consider full-time work experience post earning your bachelors degree.

Thank you for the answer! I feel a bit borderline between the different programs - MBA, EMBA and even Executive MBA/MS in Healthcare Leadership program (I'm a biologist). How would you advise me to move forward?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:31PM
Hi Noa, we haven't officially made an announcement of our application requirements for the year, but we will be accepting requests to waive the GMAT/GRE. More information surrounding this will be available soon as our application will be available on August 1 for the upcoming year.
Itay, my recommendation is to connect with current students from each program to discuss your credentials and overall experience and how it will add value to each program.

What will happen with job offers and summer internships? any COVID effects?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:42PM
Hi Asaf! Students did very well with job offers and summer internships. The biggest difference was recruiting virtually. Hopefully this year, companies will return to in person recruiting but our Career Management Center continues to work closely with our students to find placement.

How would you advise candidates to get to know your MBA program and student community if they aren’t able to visit your campus?
Cornell Johnson

Hi Elad, I would encourage you to use our Connect with Students and Community Search tool page, we have current students listed on there and you can reach out to them with question about the program, Ithaca, or student life! https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/admissions/community-search-tool/connect-with-students/ and https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/admissions/community-search-tool/.

Guest- Nir
6/10 07:55PM
Do I need to submit any evidence of financial support with my application?
Cornell Johnson
6/10 07:57PM
Hi Ben, typically students do not work full-time during the program as they will leave their jobs before the program starts. Due to the time commitment of classwork, recruiting, and professional clubs most students don't have time to work, though some may work part-time jobs.
Hi Nir! No, you do not need to provide evidence of financial support within the application but we do ask a question about how you are taking steps to prepare financially for an MBA
