Cornell NYC Tech Campus
Johnson and our alumni will soon have a serious presence in a major metropolitan area.
Cornell University and its partner, the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, were selected to realize New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s vision for a cutting-edge NYC Tech Campus
that will serve as a global magnet for tech talent and entrepreneurship. This creates exciting opportunities for both Cornell and Johnson. While precise plans are still taking shape for this long-term project, Johnson intends to offer courses in NYC beginning with our Accelerated MBA
programs for those with technical degrees like our MBA/MEng dual degree
and PhD/MBA. The summer core coursework for the Accelerated MBA program will most likely be in Ithaca initially. In New York City, courses in entrepreneurship, innovation, commercialization, and others are planned.
Johnson was involved in the proposal for the new tech campus and will be involved in the realization of the campus and its offerings. Our school will work on the management of entrepreneurial and commercialization efforts - helping to guide new business start-ups based on graduate and PhD research. Johnson entrepreneurs and venture capitalists will serve as advisors, along with other experts from the NYC area.
Senior administrators from Cornell and Johnson will work over the next several months to develop a multi-year plan to be rolled out over the next three decades. Although details are still tentative, what is known is that the NYC tech campus has the power to transform Cornell, Johnson, and New York City.
