EMBA Metro NY Residential Sessions
Focus on your career
Although career and executive coaching is an integral part of the entire EMBA Metro NY program experience, you’ll take part in focused career development activities and one-on-one discussions with staff from the EMBA Career Development Office during a portion of some of your residential sessions.
Get to know faculty and classmates
While in Ithaca, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to engage with faculty and classmates outside of the classroom. Activities include team-building with Cornell Outdoor Education, attending hockey or basketball games, touring the Cornell campus, visiting local Finger Lakes wineries, and hiking in nearby parks.
