Program Start/Fall Semester
At Johnson, our MPS – Management Orientation includes a mix of orientation activities, recruiting preparation, and team-building/social events. Please note that orientation is mandatory for all new MPS – Management (including Accounting Specialization) students.
This Cornell-wide orientation for international graduate and professional students covers a variety of topics, including U.S. immigration law, transitioning to a new academic culture, academic expectations, sources of support, language barriers, health and safety, and more.
We strongly encourage all international MPS – Management program students to attend. Please be sure to register by August 11, 2021. Learn more.
Cornell courses, including any in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, begin Thursday, August 26.
Coursework in the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management begins Monday, August 30. Most MPS – Management students are typically enrolled in a mix of courses in and outside of the Johnson School. As such, you will begin taking classes on Thursday, August 26, when Cornell coursework officially begins. You can expect, however, to have an additional course or two in the Johnson School that will not formally begin until Monday, August 30.
Cornell observes the federal Labor Day holiday. Offices will be closed and classes will not be held.
This is your chance to take a break from classes and relax. It’s also an excellent time to catch up on career preparation and recruiting-related work.
Some courses run for the full semester; others are half-semester courses. First-half fall courses will end on this day.
Some courses run for the full semester; others are half-semester courses. Second-half fall courses will begin on this day.
Please note that Cornell is unable to observe this federal holiday due to the demands of the fall academic calendar. We thank all of Johnson’s Veterans for their service.
No classes will be held during this period.
Once classes end, you will have a brief study period, and then final exams will begin.
This is the latest possible date that you will have a final exam. Your specific exam schedule will depend on the courses in which you enroll, and will be available in the fall.
This is the first official day of your winter vacation.
