Prepare for impact.

About/Program Overview

The Johnson Admissions Bridge began as a student lead initiative designed to introduce Cornell Undergraduate women as well as students from underrepresented backgrounds to the Johnson School and the MBA admission process. Jessica Lowery McAuliffe MBA ’17 and Mehrdad Moghaddam MBA ’17 developed the idea for their Roy H. Park leadership service project and as a way to help diverse students begin to explore and better understand the pathway to business school. The Roy H. Park Fellowship is a full-tuition fellowship awarded to 25 MBA candidates per year who demonstrate outstanding leadership potential.
