The Queen's-Cornell International Executive Master of Business Administration (IEMBA) is a 17-month program jointly offered by Queen's University's School of Business in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and the Johnson Graduate School of Management of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, USA. The Program is targeted at 'managers and executives with international business aspirations' and aims to provide them with the ideas, skills, tools, and international perspectives required 'to take on the challenges of today∆s global business environment.' The focal point of the Program is the International Business Project whose goal is to provide students with 'a real-world international business experience.' The Project requires students to form into teams and engage in 'a comprehensive analysis of a real international business issue or opportunity anywhere outside of the U.S. or Canada.' Funded by their respective University, in order to complete the Project, students will be required to travel to the location chosen by them and 'conduct a minimum of five days of field research.' The IEMBA will deliver its classes utilizing a variety of formats including 'on-campus sessions and highly interactive videoconference sessions' as well as holding classes 'all day Sunday and Monday morning every other week' that will be broadcast 'to Boardroom Learning Teams across Canada and the United States via state-of-the-art, multi-point videoconferencing, a learning technology.' However, about 40% of classes will be held in the traditional on-campus format at the partnered universities and at the IBM Executive Learning Facility near New York City. Graduates will be awarded an MBA from both Queen's University's School of Business and Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management.
