The eCornell Approach:                        Connected. Powerful. Convenient


Learning happens through interaction and collaboration–a dynamic, creative process that involves the exchange of ideas, not simply the accumulation of facts. In eCornell courses you interact with an expert instructor and a cohort of your peers to collectively develop knowledge, and to effectively apply that knowledge in your organization.  

You are also connected to the knowledge and resources of Cornell University, a leading global research university. eCornell courses offer embedded "Ask the Expert" interviews with Cornell faculty, online access to library reference guides, and additional professional and executive education opportunities at Cornell.


eCornell courses are authored and designed with one or more Cornell faculty member, using the most current and relevant case studies, research, and content.

Our patent-pending approach to problem-based learning means that you are building knowledge and skills using online case studies, interactive exercises, and simulations based on authentic, relevant, and "real-world" situations.

Certificates from Cornell University, CEU credits, and other industry-specific re-certification credits ensure that eCornell professional and executive education courses will enhance your career.


eCornell courses provide the convenience of structure and flexibility with new course sections starting every month, round-the-clock/round-the-world access to course materials, online and telephone customer support, and dedicated online instructors.
