Please carefully review these dates for your summer term and put them in your calendar now.
Academic Dates: A Note About Weekends
Due to the highly-accelerated nature of the summer core curriculum, please understand that weekends are not free. Weekends are frequently needed for group work, academic review sessions, and other activities. Additionally, some summer core midterm and final exams are held on weekends. We urge you to avoid outside commitments in order to stay fully engaged.
The intensive summer core necessitates Data Analytics & Modeling some online coursework that you must complete before your arrival in Ithaca. This will include some assignments and quizzes that you need to do before you finish the material in person. Watch for an email from us on or around March 18, 2020 on how to get started.
Incoming international students must participate in International Student Orientation (ISO) before the official start of the MBA program. All ISO sessions will be delivered virtually.
The summer core curriculum is extremely accelerated. Class sessions and exam dates are mandatory; plan to be fully engaged and limit your outside commitments. Typically, you will take two classes at a time, with sessions all day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Wednesdays are devoted to group work, career prep, and other activities. You’ll use weekends to work with your core team, attend review sessions, and sometimes take exams.
