Cornell to Establish an Integrated College of Business

New College to merge the Johnson School, School of Hotel Administration, and the School of Applied Economics and Management

Cornell University has announced that it will integrate its three business divisions into one "College of Business."

The new College of Business will be comprised of the Johnson Graduate School of Management, the School of Hotel Administration, and the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management.

This means that all of Cornell's accredited business programs will be located under one roof. The AACSB-accredited Johnson School offers several MBA programs, including the traditional two-year MBA in Cornell, as well as an Executive MBA and the new one-year Cornell Tech MBA in New York City. The School of Hotel Administration offers a highly-regarded Master of Hospitality Management program as well as other undergraduate and graduate-level programs. The Dyson School has an undergraduate program as well as a Master of Science and various other graduate-level courses.

According to Cornell, this new unified College will allow for more interdisciplinary work and foster a more collaborative research environment. It will also help make administration more efficient.

The new College of Business will be launched in the next academic year.
