What is it about Cornell SC Johnson College of Business that students love the most?

The college allows students to explore many new options in business education, enlarge their networks and ultimately develop themselves further.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your Business College in the last year.  

The Executive MBA/MS for Healthcare Leadership, offered at Weill Medical College in New York City, is a two-year program in which students will receive a Master of Science degree from the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences and an MBA from the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. The program will focus on health care throughout the United States, in particular health care systems that are experiencing vast changes in structure, payment and regulatory requirements. Designed to satisfy the evolving professional needs of the U.S. health care industry, the program will educate leaders of academic medical centers, community hospitals, large group multi-specialty or single-specialty practices, health insurers, health care consultants, pharmaceutical professionals and health care innovators.

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of the Business School courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why? 

At Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, we strive to transcend the traditional boundaries of business education and research to transform critical thinking into practical solutions. We’re continuously re-defining business education and pioneering new approaches, and we hope the instruction our students receive prepare them to be pioneering leaders themselves. We also care deeply about a strong moral compass and integrity. The character that comes to mind as an inspirational pioneer and leader with strong values is Captain Jean Luc Pickard from Star Trek, who could teach a new class in the business of the final frontier.

Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, Cornell University Bio

Cornell University has created a reimagined model for business education that reflects the future of business itself: flexible, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary. The Cornell SC Johnson College of Business unites the strengths of three business schools— School of Hotel AdministrationCharles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management — so that every student can benefit from the combined power of business at Cornell: more degrees, faculty, resources, and expertise. Whether the focus is creating great customer experiences, solving real-world challenges, or deeply immersing in a particular industry, each of our schools offer something unique and meaningful.

What is it about your MBA program that students love the most? 

Students enjoy immersing themselves in our innovative curriculum, thriving in internships, and solving real-world business challenges.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

Finance & Ethics, Professor Maureen O’Hara  

Ethical decision-making is usually taught in business schools by ethics scholars rather than scholars in functional areas like finance or marketing. Material in such courses can lack the richness of the functional or industrial context. The course, Finance & Ethics, was introduced by Professor Maureen O’Hara, based on her new book Something for Nothing: Arbitrage and Ethics on Wall Street. This course examines the cultural, competitive, and historical factors contributing to ethical problems in modern finance, and how these manifest in financial contexts as varied as the subprime mortgage crisis to high frequency trading.

We also care deeply about a strong moral compass and integrity. The character that comes to mind as an inspirational pioneer and leader with strong values is Captain Jean Luc Pickard from Star Trek.  He could teach courses in principled leadership as well as business on the frontier of science and technology.
