University of Pittsburgh - Katz Graduate School of Business
Since 1960, the Katz Graduate School of Business has been recognized as a leader in business education and research. One of the 16 founding members of the AACSB, Katz is home to one of the first federally funded Centers for International Business and Research. Katz has a world-class faculty dedicated to cutting-edge and innovative research and teaching. The school’s location in the heart of the nation’s #1 most livable city (2009 The Economist) enables Katz to establish strong relations with corporations located in the Pittsburgh region. The Katz school has embraced a strategic vision founded on the concept of experienced-based learning. We have incorporated simulations, case competitions, and Consulting Field Projects in our curriculum to ensure that our MBA graduates add immediate value to their employers when they enter the workforce. The Executive MBA program prepares graduates to compete with the world’s top executives. The course work focuses on vision, strategic planning, and execution. Three international immersion sessions (Global Executive Forums) are conducted in North America, Europe, and South America at the beginning, midpoint, and end of each program of study and allow students to engage in course work infused with a global context.
