Financial Planning: Cornell Tech MBA International Students


Every day we benefit from the invaluable contributions our international community members make to Johnson. Learn about Cornell’s commitment to supporting international students and find resources at Global Learning.

International Student Orientation

Incoming international students must participate in International Student Orientation before the start of Johnson classes. ISO is designed to:

  • acclimate you to U.S. business school
  • help you build early connections with key faculty and staff, as well as your international peers
  • launch your career search with an introduction to how to be successful on the job market

ISO Details

  • Required programming: ISO will be held ahead of the May program start.
  • There is no fee to attend ISO, but you must participate unless you request a waiver and the waiver is granted.

ISO Waivers

International students who have extensive U.S.-based work and/or educational experience might be eligible to waive the ISO requirement. To inquire about a waiver, please contact New Students with more information about your background.
