Cornell Executive MBA Americas


The Executive MBA Americas program consists of 60 credits of coursework delivered over 17 months through a combination of synchronous distance education and traditional in-person learning. The program is offered in partnership with the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. Students earn two MBAs: one from Cornell and one from Queen’s. The Executive MBA Americas features a highly integrated series of courses that provide a solid grounding in the fundamentals of management and a thorough understanding of advanced management topics. The courses are sequenced so that each course builds on the content of the previous offering, allowing ample opportunity to apply learning to current business situations. For additional information, see the Executive MBA Americas website.


The Executive MBA Americas program is tailored to meet the needs of working professionals looking to advance their careers without interrupting them. Each cohort of 160 students represents a wide range of geographic and industry perspectives. No single industry represents more than 20% of the class profile each year.
