eCornell was established in 2000 to meet the global demand for professional and executive development. Owned entirely by one of the United States’ Ivy League universities, Cornell University, eCornell has a catalog of 95 courses and 24 certificate programs in the fields of Leadership and Financial Management, Project Leadership and Systems Design, Financial Management, Management Essentials, Human Resources Management, and Hospitality and Foodservice Management.
In keeping with the high standards of its parent company, eCornell’s programs have been developed, designed and authored by faculty members of Cornell University’s Johnson Graduate School of Management, School of Hotel Administration, School of Industrial and Labor Relations and the College of Engineering.
Tuition at eCornell is program-dependent and is computed on a per credit hour basis. Financial assistance is offered through discounts when the full tuition is paid in advance, interest free payment plans and veterans / GI Bill approved programs. Potential students can apply for admission through phone or online. Details on tuition, admission requirements and available financial programs can be found on the eCornell website or by contacting an eCornell representative.
Because eCornell is not an academic degree granting institution, it is not accredited in the same way a college or university would be. The courses, however, are approved by the American Council on Education (ACE), Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI),and the Project Management Institute (PMI). The School of Continuing Education at Cornell University recognizes eCornell courses. All courses are eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEU). Cornell University, however, is accredited with the Middle States Commission on Higher Learning.
