Cornell University, Johnson Schoolにて新カリキュラムの導入（必修科目群）が発表されました。
The new core will place a stronger emphasis on leadership, modeling and analytics, and the timing of the courses will be adjusted to take into consideration today’s more intense recruiting environment.
The new core curriculum seeks to address each of these issues. The most important change is to the way Johnson teaches leadership, which the new core will address in a more systematic fashion. There is now a consistent “two year picture” to leadership development, with Leading Teams in August prior to the first year, Critical and Strategic Thinking in the second half of Fall semester, and Principled Leadership in the first half of Fall in each student’s second year at Johnson. The combination of these three courses will replace Managing and Leading Organizations, which is now taught in the second half of the Spring semester in the first year.
Modeling was addressed by revamping Statistics to become Data Analytics and Modeling (though the name of this course may change). This course will be led by Professor Bill Schmidt, and will emphasize the modeling skills that alumni and recruiters have consistently said is in high demand.
