The Cornell Executive MBA is unique in many aspects, including, but not limited to, the Global Business Project, the weekend sessions at an offsite training center, where all students stay overnights, every other Saturday. It was an amazing experience and the best decision, I made in my life. The administration did a great job in picking the right candidates, which made the experience even more appealing and worth while. Furthermore, the access to the Cornell alumni helped me already immensely for my professional development.
