Smith School of Business – Queen’s University - Executive MBA

Smith School of Business Executive MBA Program Structure

There are two distinct EMBA offerings at the Queen’s University Smith School of Business: a 16-month Executive National MBA, and a 17-month joint Executive MBA Americas in partnership with the Cornell University Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management.

The 16-month Executive MBA is a hybrid program, with classes offered in numerous Canadian metros and digitally, with classes held on Fridays and on Saturday mornings, every other week. It begins in early August at Queen’s University with the formal schedule launching in September. Students head back to the business school campus the following February for a week-long Creativity and Innovation Session. The final month of the program, November, features a week-long Strategic Electives Session on campus as well. A one-week international study session in optional.

The Executive MBA Americas is on a similar schedule, with classes held all day Saturday and on Sunday mornings, every other week, although the program formally begins in June with two separate one-week sessions on the Queen’s University campus, followed by the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York. The following February, students participate in a week-long Business Venturing Session in Scottsdale, Arizona. The program concludes like the formal Smith School of Business EMBA, with a week-long Global Business Session in November, 17 months after the program starts. The November session is split between Queen’s and Cornell.

Curriculum

The curriculum of both EMBA programs are built around class instructions, real-world projects, case studies, and simulations. As well, both programs feature the same standard for project completion. Students in either EMBA program must complete a team-based Global Business Project and a choice of either the a New Venture Project or a Management Consulting Project.
