            2000-2000, Marketing Management

            I was fortunate enough to study part of the hospitality PDP and undoubtedly my experience was rewarding from all professional points of view. Over the years I have been able to implement a lot of what I have learned and much further, my experience at Cornell have helped me opening my professional perspective for other industries in which I have worked in the past and that I work today.

          • Testimony
            1990-1995, MS

            When Ezra Cornell wrote these words in 1868, he may not have known that they would stand as true 150 years later as they did then. My time at Cornell taught me that a school's most valuable trait is its diversity -- in studies, in instructors, in student body, and in CU's case, in its weather. No matter how many times a Cornell student may change his or her mind about where to point his or her ship, s/he will find an inspiring mentor, an avid student interest, and an excellent reputation. You couldn't ask for a better life and work foundation (in that priority order) in today's restless world. Don't hesitate for a second. Apply now and you'll be glad you did, wherever life takes you.
