The Cornell–Queen’s program is a highly-integrated series of courses that provides a solid grounding in the fundamentals of management and a thorough understanding of advanced management topics. The courses are sequenced so that each course builds on the content of the previous courses, allowing ample opportunity to apply your learning to real-world business situations. Throughout the program your course work will be augmented by guest speakers, field trips, and other highly relevant hands-on experiences in both Canada and the U.S.
Classes are delivered via real-time, interactive videoconference technology – a learning technology that Queen’s has been utilizing and perfecting for more than 14 years. Multi-point videoconference is used to link Learning Teams in major cities across North America. Professors lead the classes from purpose-built studios on the Queen’s and Cornell campuses. Participants are able to interact directly with the professor and with the other teams.
The Boardroom Learning approach also provides tremendous flexibility. The program is offered in major cities across Canada and the United States. This means that when business takes you on the road, you may be able to attend class in the city you are visiting and, should you be required to relocate during the program, you may be able to join a team in your destination city.
