University of Pittsburgh MBA
As a global, AACSB-accredited institution, we offer MBA, Executive MBA, PhD, and master’s programs in accounting, business analytics, finance, management marketing, MIS, and supply chain management that are continually ranked among the world's best by independent publications. Led by our world-renowned faculty, our curriculum incorporates their groundbreaking research, entrepreneurial spirit, and emphasis on experience-based learning. As part of the University of Pittsburgh, our students and faculty enjoy an abundance of opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our leadership network spans the globe: 33,000 alumni live in more than 90 countries. Through our Career Management Center, we build partnerships with leading companies and assist students in realizing their full career potential. We consider the City of Pittsburgh as more than our address; it defines us, as we share its spirit of resiliency and collaboration. Established in 1960, but with history dating to 1907, Katz is the first school to offer a one-year MBA (1963) and among the first to offer an Executive MBA (1972). We believe that success favors the agile, which is why we immerse students in real-world experiences so they graduate ready to build, lead, and contribute immediately.
The University of Pittsburgh is home to more than 2,900 international students—more than one half of whom are pursuing a graduate degree. At Katz, we value the experience, perspective, and diversity of thinking that you, as an international student, bring to our program.
Our class profile changes every year. Core countries represented in the classroom have included Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United States, to name just a few.
We also have a number of Exchange Programs through our partner schools:
Augsburg Executive Fellows Exchange Program
Kedge Business School Exchange Program
Santa Maria University Exchange Program
European Business School Exchange Program
With a Katz MBA you will be confident in your ability to tackle whatever business problems you come up against. You'll be more valuable to future employers, or perhaps you'll put your finely honed talents to work in starting your own business.
From the beginning, you'll notice a spirit of collaboration at Katz. Past MBA students have commented that the atmosphere isn't as competitive as it is collaborative. It comes from the school's commitment to globalism and diversity. From your very first team project, you'll recognize the benefits of a truly global business school because you'll be working in an environment that reflects the markets of the world.
