Cornell University, College of Business

Our collective vision is to inspire leaders to build sustainable, shared prosperity. Our mission is to transcend the traditional boundaries of business education and research to transform critical thinking into practical solutions. We collaborate within our college, across Cornell, and beyond to mobilize diverse expertise, generate world-class knowledge, inspire students, and impact society in a positive manner. Our five core values celebrate excellence, inclusion, engagement, community, and impact, more broadly defined as: Excellence—we exceed standards and insist on the highest quality of execution in all we do; research and innovate continuously; courageously experiment with new ideas and approaches; do the right thing; exhibit integrity and the highest ethical standards in all we do. Inclusion—we embrace diversity in all its forms; collaborate across disciplines and colleges; celebrate one another’s contributions to the distinct missions of our three schools. Engagement—we inspire students, alumni, and external partners through personalized, transformative interactions; partner with all stakeholders for mutual gain; instill an entrepreneurial spirit to pursue development and fulfillment. Community—we foster unity through adaptability; value one another’s missions with integrity and transparency; engage with neighboring communities through service and stewardship; show compassion through acceptance and consideration, and seek out ways to nurture growth. Impact—we make a meaningful and positive difference in the world; help students, staff, scholars, and organizations to flourish; develop innovative solutions to pressing local and global problems.
