Queen's MBA Program

Smith offers two EMBA options. The National EMBA at Queen’s can be completed from anywhere in Canada. Classes are held either virtually or in boardrooms in nine different Canadian cities all-day Friday and Saturday every other week. Students also travel internationally for a global business project, and have the option to participate in a one-week study trip abroad. The program starts in August. The Americas EMBA is offered in partnership with Cornell University in the United States, and students earn degrees from both institutions. The program draws on participants from Latin America, as well as North America, bringing an international perspective to the classroom sessions, which are delivered through interactive videoconferencing sessions. There are also three residential sessions, split between the Queen’s campus and Cornell’s facilities in New York. (The location of one session varies each year.) Regular classes are held all day Saturday and Sunday every other weekend. Students must complete a global business project (an analysis of a business issue or opportunity outside of their home countries), as well as a new venture project or a management consulting project. The program begins in July.
