The cornerstone of any Executive MBA program is its faculty. Johnson faculty members are among the best in the world, internationally recognized by the business community for their teaching, experience, and research.

They are experts at merging theory with application to guide your graduate experience.  Most faculty who teach in the Cornell Executive MBA are full-time Johnson faculty members.  When we appoint teaching faculty outside Cornell, we seek top faculty from the best schools who will enhance your graduate experience.
