The Cornell executive MBA program combines a traditional MBA program with the general management curriculum and weekend format of an executive degree program.

The 22-month program is divided into four terms of approximately equal length. Each term begins with a week in residence on the Cornell campus in Ithaca, New York. Following each of the four residence weeks, classes meet on alternate weekends (Saturday morning until Sunday noon) at the IBM Palisades Executive Conference Center.

All courses are sequenced so that each course builds on the content of the previous material learned. The curriculum also includes a global business and a new venture component.
