Week of May 6
Accelerated MBA Program Begins
We advise that you arrive in Ithaca early to get settled. Once classes begin you won't have time to get your phone turned on, etc. Your program starts the week of May 6, 2013, so we encourage you to look for a lease start date that will allow you to move in before the week of May 6.
July 31 - August 2

Second-half Fall Semester Core Courses Final Exam Period
While first-year core course exams are currently scheduled to end by Friday, December 13, 2013, there are frequently job search and networking trips, and some international class trips scheduled after finals end and before the holidays. Our advice is to avoid booking travel for December until the fall so you may be better informed about possible programs.
