Ivy League Curricula & Top-Ranked Faculty
eCornell‘s unique approach to online learning combines the most effective elements of an Ivy League classroom with the flexibility of an online learning environment. eCornell courses are all developed by Cornell University faculty, and often include practical insights from other industry experts.
Self-Paced But Facilitated
eCornell courses—while self-paced and 100% online—are facilitated by subject-matter experts, who guide you, challenge you, and help you apply the course concepts to your real-world, on-the-job circumstances. Courses are designed to accommodate the schedules of busy professionals, so they are available around the clock and completely asynchronous. This means that once you begin your course, there is no appointed time or day that you must be online.
Start and End Dates Drive Completion
eCornell courses have defined start dates and end dates. A critical part of self-directed learning is to have a finish line. Each course is a structured 2 week time frame. Should you need to transfer out of a scheduled course you will need to do so by 5:00pm EST the day prior to the course starting. You can transfer a course by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting a new start date.
Interaction & Collaboration
As an eCornell student, you are never alone in your course. You are part of a course that is made up of eCornell students from all over the world. Required discussions play an important part in your course, giving you and your colleagues the opportunity to share and exchange your own experiences, best practices, perspectives, and examples.
