eCornell is highly supportive of CAFOD Learning’s vision of making world class learning available to anyone working in the developing world to reduce poverty and alleviate suffering.

If you are interested in beginning an eCornell course, please speak to your manager and the Learning Team before signing up, as there is a higher cost than for a standard CAFOD Learning course.


eCornell certified courses normally cost about $6,600 but are heavily subsidized to employees of LINGOs (Learning In Non Governmental Organizations) member agencies, like CAFOD, in the following areas:

Project Leadership
Management Essentials
Leadership and Strategic Management
Financial Management
HR Management
Health Care
Hospitality and Food Service Management
Marketing Strategy for Business Leaders

Format of the Class

In these online courses, each student belongs to a class.  This means that students will complete assignments with the class, have open discussions with the class and interact with the instructor.  Students will need to complete the reading and homework assignments and can expect the instructor will return their homework and ask that parts of it be redone. The class is offered in a very specific amount of time (several weeks) and students must complete assignments during that time.  Participation in group discussions and completion of a student profile are also mandatory. Students must have a reliable internet connection, strong fluency in English and 10-20 hours available during the course session.
