One-Year MBAs complete their summer semester in core teams with students in the Johnson Cornell Tech MBA program. When the fall semester begins, Cornell Tech students will head to New York City to complete their studies. The summer months give MBAs from both programs a great opportunity to learn from each other and build their networks. Ithaca students can connect with their Cornell Tech MBA counterparts again if they choose to complete a NYC intensive course at Tech in the fall or spring.

Incoming MBAs spent pre-term learning about career planning and paths, the City of Ithaca, and resources within and around Cornell University. Then core teams dove into the Leading Teams Practicum with Laura Georgiana, executive director of leadership programs, and Alan Filipowicz, clinical professor of management and organizations.
