In-person delivery
The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA is delivered in person in a classroom setting. This live, face-to-face delivery ensures optimal learning and the development of a personal relationship with both professors and classmates from Canada, the U.S., and throughout the world.

Throughout the program, faculty build group work into every lesson, and professional knowledge of executive classmates enhances the learning of all students.
