The Johnson Cornell Tech MBA is the only MBA program in the USA where business school students learn, study, and develop digital products alongside graduate students in computer science, electrical engineering, operations research, information systems, law, and design.

The 12-month program, which begins with a 10-week summer session in Ithaca, New York working on business and leadership fundamentals at Cornell University’s Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management, bridges the business and tech worlds by emphasizing cross-disciplinary teamwork in a studio-based curriculum.

The Johnson Cornell Tech MBA, conferred by the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, provides the same foundational curriculum as Johnson’s other full-time, residential MBA programs while focusing on entrepreneurship, developing technology-driven business solutions, and leveraging New York City’s vibrant tech startup community.

Cornell Tech is a joint academic venture between Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and is partnered with the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, an independent entity that embraces novel research and entrepreneurial initiatives that address social and economic needs around the world.
Cornell Tech has very strong ties to the Israeli tech industry – all of our Master’s students have the option to participate in iTrek, a for-credit, fall-semester course that pairs student teams with Israeli startups to identify that company’s “pain point” and ends with a 10-day trek around Israel, where students present their findings to their assigned startups and explore the region.

1 year (May-May)


Merit-based; generous
