Class Weekends

Weekend classes in the Executive MBA Americas program are delivered live to your local city from a state-of-the-art broadcast studio in the Breazzano Family Center for Business Education in Ithaca, New York.

You’ll meet with other students in your city’s boardroom and use videoconferencing technology to connect with your Americas cohort across 20 other boardroom locations in North and South America.

Boardroom locations

Boardrooms are located in 20 cities. If you are a substantial distance (typically 200 miles or more) from a boardroom, you may be able to participate in the program remotely. Remote learner spaces are limited. Contact the Executive MBA Americas admissions office for more details.

Boardroom experience

Each class weekend, the studio team in Ithaca delivers a seamless classroom experience for students in the Americas program and the faculty who teach them.

During classes, you will interact with students sitting next to you just as easily as you’ll engage with classmates on the other side of the country. You can “raise your hand” by pushing a button, ask and answer questions, share insights, and report back after breakout sessions with your boardroom team.
