Program Schedule

Class of 2019 Schedule Overview

Classes in the Cornell Executive MBA Americas are delivered in two dynamic formats.

During weekend classes, faculty teach live from our on-campus studios while students attend classes at their local boardroom. Weekend classes are typically held every other weekend, with class all day Saturday and Sunday morning*. Approximately 60% of the classes are delivered on weekends.

The remaining classes are delivered during three residential sessions. These sessions are held at the beginning, middle, and end of the program, and vary in length. During residential sessions, students have the opportunity to spend time on the Cornell and Queen’s campuses, with students from various boardroom locations.

*On occasion, a Sunday afternoon class session and/or meeting may occur. These dates will be shared well in advance.
