With two new locations ”“ one in the Bay Area and one in the Los Angeles Area ”“ the CQEMBA program’s California cohort will be able to participate via live, multipoint, interactive videoconferencing in the unique MBA program designed through a partnership between Cornell and Queen’s School of Business in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
“The CQEMBA is truly an innovative MBA program, both programmatically as well as through its means of delivery,” said Dr. Danny Szpiro, founding director of the program, in a statement announcing the expansion. “The flexibility videoconferencing provides, plus the Boardroom Learning Team environment, offers a reflection of today’s highly collaborative corporate environment.”
CQEMBA participants are mid-career managers and professionals organized into Boardroom Learning Teams of approximately six to eight people and 60% of courses are delivered via a series of boardroom sessions, using interactive multipoint videoconferencing. The balance of the course work is delivered during three on-campus residential sessions. Videoconferencing classes are held three Saturdays per month during the sixteen-month program.
Szpiro believes the expansion of this degree program to professionals in California comes at an opportune time, with many applicants spurred to use the downturn to enhance their skill base and resumes.
Graduates of the program earn two MBA degrees: one from Cornell University and a separate, second MBA degree from Queen’s University, and are alumni of both schools. For more information about the program, visit www.johnson.cornell.edu/academic/cqemba.
