Any person can study any subject—that was Ezra Cornell's vision when he founded Cornell University in 1865 on a hill above Cayuga Lake in central New York. The Ivy League school that was once called "the first American university" by educational historian Frederick Rudolph is also home to the nation's first colleges devoted to hotel administration, industrial and labor relations, and veterinary medicine.
On the Ithaca campus alone nearly 20,000 students representing every state and 120 countries choose from among 4,000 courses in 11 undergraduate, graduate, and professional schools, including three accredited business degree programs. Undergraduates earn the BS degree in the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics & Management; the MBA and PhD degrees are awarded by the S.C. Johnson Graduate School of Management; and the Master of Management in Hospitality (MMH) degree is earned at the School of Hotel Administration.
