Class Weekends


The Executive MBA/MS in Healthcare Leadership program is designed for working professionals with a “learn it Saturday/Sunday and apply it Monday” approach for immediate impact. Classes are held on alternate weekends, with a full day of classes on Saturdays and a half day of classes on Sundays, at the Tata Innovation Center on the Cornell Tech campus in New York City.

During class weekends, you will connect with program faculty and work in student teams through a combination of classroom instruction, group projects, networking events, and more.

Class instruction

Class weekends begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday mornings and break for lunch at noon. The academic day concludes at 5:30 p.m. On Sunday, you’ll typically be in class until 12:15 p.m. This half-day format gives you time to regroup with family before work on Monday.

Team-based approach

The program is designed to have a team-based structure, and each EMBA/MS cohort is composed of clinicians and non-clinicians. In order to support your professional development as a leader in the healthcare ecosystem, and as a member of a student team, you’ll work with certified executive and team coaches.
