Two-Year MBA

General

Program Description

Turn ambition into impact with tailored curriculum, a unique set of Ithaca and NYC course options, and a community of faculty, staff, peers, and friends who have your back.


What makes the Johnson Two-Year MBA program different?

Its tight-knit community, one-of-a-kind curriculum, and dual-campus approach. You’ll be prepared to hit the ground running and stand out among your colleagues—first during your internship and then again as you begin your new career.


Curriculum and Academics

For career enhancers and switchers, Johnson’s flexible Two-Year MBA curriculum gives students the practical skills they need and the freedom to dive into an area they’re passionate about. Far from a lock-step sequence, students can customize their studies and focus on specific industries during their first year. They also develop leadership skills, work with second-year MBA mentors, and participate in domestic and international treks.

  • First semester: Required courses in the MBA Core—topics such as financial accounting, microeconomics, strategy, leading teams, data analytics, and more
  • Second semester: Hands-on learning and industry immersion—corporate finance, digital technology, investment banking, investment research and asset management, strategic operations, strategic marketing, or sustainable global enterprise
  • Summer internship
  • Third semester: Electives, co-curricular activities, and NYC weekend courses
  • Fourth semester: More electives, NYC intensives, and course selections across Cornell University


Student Experience

Johnson’s community is tight-knit and small by design—about 280 students in each Two-Year MBA class. Johnson students are hardworking, with impressive academic and professional portfolios, but they are also supportive and willing to lend a hand to their peers. Faculty are accessible and get to know their students, and diversity of culture, though, and experience is extremely important—Johnson was one of the first top business schools to have a dedicated Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
