Unique Cornell-Queen’s Executive MBA program now available in North America and Latin America
Cornell University’s Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management announces the launch of its innovative Cornell-Queen’s Executive MBA Program (CQEMBA), in Latin America and Mexico. The program’s class of 2014 includes four MBA students in Bogota, Colombia, and five in Monterrey, Mexico. They are among 163 working managers in the class of 2014, who are earning a Cornell MBA from 26 Boardroom learning sites in 23 cities in the U.S., Canada, and now Latin America and Mexico.
“We are now an additional step closer to our goal - building the global program that we envision.” said Joseph Babcock, director of the Cornell-Queen’s Executive MBA Program. “With the Monterrey site, we now offer the degree in all of North America, and we are very excited to add Bogota, Colombia, as we create a program that spans the hemisphere.”
The CQEMBA employs advanced videoconferencing technology to link live with Cornell professors and other boardrooms in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America. Students engage in real-time classroom lectures and discussions, replicating the connectedness and energy of global business. Classes are delivered in English, and participants earn an MBA degree in 16 months.
“Students in Colombia and Mexico will earn the same MBA degree as their counterparts in Johnson’s Ithaca, New York-based MBA program,” Babcock said. “And they will enrich the learning experiences of their fellow students by providing their unique perspective on business practices in their regions and countries
