Cornell University is in the planning stages for the creation of a College of Business that will comprise the university’s three accredited business schools: the School of Hotel Administration, the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.

The plan for the new college is being developed with broad input from faculty, students, staff, and alumni. The College of Business will benefit faculty and students by bringing together the excellence and breadth of Cornell’s leading undergraduate, graduate, and professional business programs to create a more collaborative and comprehensive business management program, while preserving the individual excellence of the three schools. The new college is anticipated to launch during the 2016-17 academic year.

Listen to students, faculty, and administrators explain their unique perspective on the creation of the College of Business. Watch videos »
