Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The full-time MBA program at Cornell University is a very respected one. It provides a rigorous curriculum and access to a huge network from the university. Students are driven and push themselves harder everytime while also helping each other. The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) is very engaged with very respected and structured programs, such as The Consortium, NSHMBA, and NBMBAA among others to support and promote diversity in the school as well as in the workplace.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The Electrical Engineering program at Cornell University is well-supported and well-recognized for the quality experience and education it provides to its students. The students themselves are engaged and find their way to their passion within Electrical Engineering to complete their PhD. The social life of students is quite alive, though Ithaca is a small town - especially during the winter when it's cold! The faculty are also generally accessible and approachable, though they can be quite busy and hard to get a hold of at certain times of the year! Graduate school here is quite difficult, but if a graduate degree is something you want and something you're willing to work hard for, this is a rewarding place to work for it.

Cornell is an excellent place to attend school. It is a quiet location in which you can really throw yourself into you studies and absorb all the information.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Great surrounding area. Ithaca is beautiful, has a small-town feel, and provides much to do. Great transportation system. -Great school. Promotes collaboration and teamwork over cutthroat competition. Phenomenal instruction and academics. -Good career support. The winter's areharsher than some other schools. -Not the largest network in the world, but network is supportive and active. -Workload is heavy at times, but I wanted a good education so that goes with the territory.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is extremely flexible and whatever you'd like to specialize in the school makes available to you. The downside is that it is in Ithaca which is pretty much a college town. Getting past that is easily the biggest down side of the program. You can make the program what you so therefore if you select this you have to be ready to apply yourself.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

The courses at Cornell are really flexible, and there are so many choices and opportunities on campus. The professors are very supportive and patient to students. We have call to action and town hall meeting every year, which is the opportunity for students to talk to faculties how we think about the program, and what we want for the program. The faculties really listened to our opinion. They hire more land use and urban design professor this year, and set up urban design semester in NYC this year, all because we- the students want them. However, the location of the campus is so far away from large cities, which is one concern for me.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

They still do a c***** job of making sure that enough good classes are offered in the spring. Every single practicum is offered only in the fall. Annoying if you're only in a one year program.
