Joint Ventures (Partners & Families)

Joint Ventures is a Johnson club that offers student partners the chance to learn more about Cornell and Ithaca. The club will sponsor a fun, informative program at Destination Johnson through which you will learn firsthand about job opportunities, on-and off-campus housing, life in Ithaca, and the Johnson community. You'll network with others who are thriving in their new community and you will learn the secrets of successful relocation. Club members will even give you an inside look into what your student will be experiencing during his/her MBA program. Most of all, you'll meet new people who share your questions, concerns, and enthusiasm.
