It’s time for Trivia Tuesday, our weekly exploration of the components that differentiate leading MBA programs from their peers. Today, we’re taking a look into the Clear Admit Guide to the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management to explore Johnson’s focus on entrepreneurship.
“Both Johnson and Cornell University itself provide a wealth of academic and experiential opportunities for MBA students interested in entrepreneurship.
“The school’s Entrepreneurship & Private Equity immersion program is designed for students who plan to start new ventures or become principals in venture capital or private equity firms. Its foundation course provides an in-depth exploration of business plan creation, valuation and management of high-growth businesses, and leveraged buyouts, among other topics. Students in this immersion work together as a cohort to support each other both academically and professionally; many spend the subsequent summer creating or implementing their own business plans, often collaborating with faculty and fellow students to hone their ideas and generate funding.
“With a total enrollment of over 20,000 students, Cornell University has the ability to offer a breadth of entrepreneurship resources. The university’s Entrepreneurship@Cornell Program brings these resources together in a multidisciplinary effort to foster student and alumni interaction in the fields of entrepreneurship and venture capital. In most years, Entrepreneurship@Cornell hosts over 100 events on campus, during which entrepreneurs deliver guest presentations and work directly with students on their business plans. The program also links entrepreneurship-focused clubs across Cornell, including the Johnson Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Club; its advisory council includes numerous entrepreneurial alumni and business leaders who mentor current Cornell students and sponsor summer internships.
“Through the Entrepreneurship@Cornell Internship Program, first-year MBA students are placed in summer internships at small to mid-sized businesses across the United States and abroad, gaining real-world experience with managing a small business. Approximately 60 Cornell students take part in the internship program each year.”
