One-Year Residential Management Science MBA

One-Year Residential Management Science MBA


Johnson’s STEM-designated, full-time One-Year MBA program in Ithaca offers a sequenced, yet flexible, curriculum, which includes the option to take courses at Cornell Tech in New York City. You’ll not only learn foundational business principles but also skills related to the industry that makes the most sense for your career advancement as you choose electives.

The program’s STEM designation recognizes a path in management science with an emphasis in data analytics, technology, and other similar disciplines integral to contemporary business leadership.

International students on an F-1 visa pursing the program are eligible for a STEM OPT extension, enabling them to work in their field for a total of up to 36 months in the U.S. This extra 24 months makes them more hirable, affords them extended professional training, and gives them additional chances in the annual lottery for limited U.S. H-1B skilled worker visas.

Students may complete their remaining credits via any graduate level courses offered at Cornell (5000 level or above).

Students in the one-year MBA are awarded 9-15 credits of advanced standing on the basis of a previously completed degree/certification. These advanced standing credits are subtracted from the free elective course requirement.
