What makes the Executive MBA Americas program different?
Its international classroom and network. Connect with classmates throughout North and South America through live, interactive videoconferencing as you attend in-person classes with your city’s cohort.
The Americas is a truly global program that will advance your career and boost your leadership potential. This executive MBA program is offered in partnership with the Smith School of Business at Queen’s University. You will complete your coursework in 17 months and earn two MBAs: one from Cornell University and one from Queen’s University.
Every other weekend, you will attend class with peers in your city’s local boardroom. At the same time, you’ll connect with classmates across five countries through videoconferencing technology—classes are taught live from Cornell’s campus. You’ll interact with classmates and professors, ask questions, complete breakout sessions, and work through the course material as a team.

Students say their new perspectives and skills are immediately transferable.
