Welcoming the Class of 2020 Two-Year MBA candidates
Johnson welcomed 280 Two-Year MBA candidates to campus in early August for two weeks of pre-term activities, panels, and leadership sessions. MBA students began working with their core teams, spent time exploring their new home in Ithaca, and learned about all the resources available to them from the Career Management Center to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Families were welcomed, as well, with two meet-and-greet receptions.
The Two-Year Class of 2020 represents 40 countries and its composition includes 33 percent women, 15 percent underrepresented minorities, and an average GMAT score of 699.

During pre-term, incoming MBAs participated in an exercise that outlined community values and expectations, the Leading Teams Case Competition with their new core teams, and Johnson Outdoor Education (JOE) offsite at Casowasco Camp where they worked on team challenges and had fun getting to know one another.
