Johnson Women in Business (JWIB) is our female student hosting event on the Cornell campus.

  • Learn about the Johnson MBA and programs to support women students
  • Network with Johnson's women students, faculty, staff, and alumni
  • Gain valuable information on mentorship and flexibility in the Johnson community

Selected applicants will also be invited to attend Johnson's annual Women in Business Symposium on Friday, September 23rd.

Participants will be eligible to receive an invitation to interview throughout the application cycle along with a Johnson application fee waiver for use during the 2017 application year. Candidates applying via The Consortium will receive up to a $200 travel voucher in lieu of the Johnson application fee waiver.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience student life at Johnson. Selected women will be hosted during their visit by current students, but will be responsible for all other travel expenses to Ithaca.
