The present study looks at the three dimensional boundary layer flow driven by an exponentially stretching surface. An upper-convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid is considered. Characteristics here are characterized by rheological constitutive equations of upper convected Maxwell (UCM) fluid. Involved mathematical modeling constitutes a nonlinear differential system. 3-stage Lobatto IIIA formula is employed to construct the numerical solutions whereas analytic solutions are computed using HAM. Both solutions are compared and found in good agreement. The velocity components are analyzed for the Deborah number and ratio parameters.
