Expert-Led with Structured Flexibility

eCornell courses are online and expert led with structured flexibility. Courses 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. You determine the schedule that’s right for you.

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. Most eCornell courses take about six to eight hours to complete, over a two-week period. About 90% of students finish their courses, a completion rate that leads the industry.

Interaction & Collaboration

As an eCornell student, you are never alone in your course. You are part of a cohort of 20 to 30 learners from organizations and industries around the world. Required discussions play an important part in your course, giving you and your classmates the opportunity to share and exchange your own experiences, best practices, perspectives, and examples. All this shared learning is facilitated by an instructor who brings both subject-matter expertise and real-world experience. Your interaction with peers from different organizations, and backgrounds fosters collaboration, networking, and a lot of practical, shared learning.
