As part of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University continues to transform graduate business education to better prepare graduates for success in tomorrow's business world. Johnson provides cutting-edge learning experiences that immerse students sooner and deeper in their chosen fields. As an integral part of the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, Johnson students can access the full power of educational and research opportunities across the university to reach deeper competency in their industries and areas of interest. Johnson offers seven different MBA programs, spanning the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Mexico, and China, and is home to award-winning faculty and research.
The Executive MBA (EMBA) programs at the Johnson School are tasked with delivering MBA programming to executives who pursue their MBA while remaining active in their careers. These programs include the EMBA Metro NY program (a general-management program located in NYC), the EMBA/MS in Healthcare Leadership (offered in collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine, also located in NYC), and the EMBA Americas (offered in collaboration with Queen's University, and delivered via a synchronous distance education in select cities across North and South America).

The Assistant Dean also fosters collaboration across EMBA programs and balances program synergy and differentiation. Direct reports include the Program Directors for the Americas and Healthcare Leadership programs, as well as the Director of EMBA Operations.
