Applications and Requirements
MBA + Graduate Degree Application Process & Johnson Requirements
In order to earn dual degrees, you must apply to and be accepted by both the Johnson and the Cornell school or department offering the other degree. You also need to inform both schools of your intent to pursue a dual degree program.
If you apply to both schools simultaneously, you will need to defer your coursework in one of the programs. Please see specific details in each dual degree offering.
If you are already enrolled in either the Johnson MBA program or another Cornell graduate degree program, you may apply to the other school any time before graduation.
Either during enrollment or your first year of study at Johnson, you must request and receive permission from the school’s Academic Standards Committee to apply credits from the other degree program to your MBA.
To earn an MBA along with another Cornell graduate degree, these are the Johnson requirements:
- 3 semesters in residence at Johnson
