The Cornell-Queen's Partnership

It is made possible through a partnership between two of North America's premier business schools — Smith School of Business at Queen’s University and the Johnson School of Management at Cornell University in New York.

  • Graduates of the program earn MBA degrees from both Cornell and Queen’s
  • Graduates are considered to be full-fledged alumni of both schools
  • The classroom experience is shared by participants from Canada, the USA and Latin America
  • Classes are led by outstanding faculty from both schools
  • Residential sessions are held at both Cornell and Queen's

There is no other executive MBA program in Canada that offers these opportunities.
