Johnson is a great MBA program. Classes are very good and students are extremely well prepared. We are a small close knit community with a strong and very supportive network.

Pros: Very supportive faculty, amazing network, lots of community support (second years love to pay it forward by helping first years with academic and recruiting advice), top education, huge selection of electives and immense opportunity to take Cornell classes outside of Johnson. Cons: The location and weather can be difficult to get used to.

Ithaca is a gorgeous city and a great community, albeit relatively small and removed from any larger Metro area. Cornell University offers a significant amount of educational and career focused resources, and the close knit network is one of the very big advantages of the school. You get to know your classmates quite well and build a significant network. As in many business schools, the amount of women and minority students in the class could be higher, but I will say that in my experience, the resources available to women and other diverse candidates is superb.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Johnson's smaller class size allows for stronger connections to be formed within the class. Everyone is super friendly, collaborative, and supportive - as one would expect by individuals who are willing to brave Ithaca's fierce and stubborn winters for 2 consecutive years. Unlike schools in large metropolitan areas, Johnson classmates do not scatter once classes adjourn. The quality of the education and professors are top-notch, and the Core pacing keeps us so busy that I feel like I can take on the world after the program is completed! Cons: The smaller class size also has its detriments; namely, resulting in lesser connections and a smaller alumni base. Johnson does not have as much representation on the west coast and tech industry. Lastly, Ithaca is extremely hilly which doesn't make for ideal walking conditions.

Overall a great program to me.And it is worthy to spend 2 years in your life to study in an Ivy league in such a great place as Ithaca.

Friendly environment! Excellent student stipends make sure you're not living off of Ramen noodles. Support for students with families is lacking, though, but this doesn't affect most grad students.
