Dean of External Relations for the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business Rohit Verma spoke on a panel of peer deans representing Michigan Ross, Tuck, UNC’s Kenan-Flagler, and Berkeley-Haas. Together they discussed the impact that technology—and a quickly changing digital landscape—will have on MBA programs.

Nearly 200 prospective MBA applicants attended the discussion, which took place at Poets&Quants’ CentreCourt MBA Festival in San Francisco.

Verma spoke on:

  • Opportunities to combine technology and business education at Cornell Tech in NYC, not only for students in the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA program, but also for students in Johnson’s full-time MBA programs in Ithaca

  • How Cornell’s business programs are embracing hands-on learning experiences, such as annual hack-a-thons and a recent business competition with Pepper the Robot, which brought together students with varying industry and academic backgrounds, integrating business and robotics

  • That public service is to remain at the top of Cornell’s priorities even as technology advances
