Every fall when the market for new hires heats up, the world's top employers go looking for Bear—the Big Red Bear graduates of Cornell's Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management.
They’re Ivy League Smart.
They’re Cornell Visionary. Cornell broadens perspectives like nowhere else. From its founding, Cornell has embraced a revolutionary, egalitarian "... any person ... any study" approach to education, reflected in its 14 schools and colleges, 70 undergraduate majors, and more than 4,000 courses.
The Applied Economics and Management major's (AEM) flexible degree requirements give students ample opportunities to enrich their top-ranked business, agribusiness, and applied economics education. Because of the Dyson School's unique location in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, one of the world's leading land-grant colleges, students can easily combine their AEM major with a focus or double major in the life sciences, environmental sciences, agricultural sciences, or applied social sciences. It's not unusual, for example, for a Dyson School student to also be majoring or minoring in a biological science, communication, natural resources, biometry and statistics, animal science, or development sociology. And that's just 6 of the 23 major fields of study in which a Dyson School student can double major or minor.
This unbounded exposure keeps Dyson School students one step ahead of the competition by giving them the ability to see a world beyond the present and preparing them to lead in a future of constant convergences between the sciences, social sciences, and the arts.
They're AEM Applied. The Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management and its AACSB International-accredited undergraduate program have a 100-year legacy of students and professors applying practical, applied economics and management tools on every continent to solve the world's most significant business and social issues. Whether our faculty's focus is on trade agreements with the European Union, emerging markets and the eradication of poverty in Africa, oil production in the Middle East, financial institutions in New York City, agribusinesses in New York State, or the economics of biofuels and wind power, they conduct relevant research whose results have a profound impact on business leaders, policy makers, management scholars, and their students.
They Believe in the Power of Collaboration. Because the Dyson School offers the smallest, most selective 4-year undergraduate business program in the U.S., our students know each other. They develop lasting mutual respect for each other's talents and views. They work closely together and with professors, alumni, and employers in the Dyson School's non-cutthroat, can-do culture to achieve results.
They're "Big Red" Energized. Almost no university demands as much of its students and rewards them as strongly with personal achievement, lifetime friendships, powerful worldwide connections, and a sense of belonging to something of great meaning.
The Dyson School's highly ranked business, agribusiness, and applied economics expertise opens eyes and doors for lifetimes of accelerated success and meaningful accomplishment.
