One of the “25 Best Schools for Family Business.”

Students at Cornell University have the opportunity to engage with their peers from leading family businesses throughout the world. Cornell has been named as one of the “25 best schools for family business” by Family Capital in 2015.  Coupled with the Cornell Family Business Club, which welcomes students from across the university, our leading faculty and our collaborative approach, students will have many opportunities to explore and understand the pathways that await them and how they relate to the family business.

Students have numerous opportunities to engage both professionally and socially while at Cornell.  The Family Business Club and all student activities focus on three primary pillars: Education, Networking, and Recruiting.  The club, courses, and activities are open to all Cornell students.
