The Executive MBA Metro NY program combines two delivery methods that emphasize collaboration expanding your leadership potential:

  • Residential sessions—four in total, held on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York, and the metro NYC area
  • Weekend classes—held at the Tata Innovation Center on the Cornell Tech campus in NYC, paired with a Saturday overnight stay

Every other weekend you’ll join classmates for in-person classes and fully immerse yourself in the program by staying in the Bentley Hotel NYC as a cohort. This format gives the program the feel of a residential MBA on the weekend, while allowing you to get back to work on Monday. Residential sessions help to unite the cohort as well.
