University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School EMBA Program

Executive MBA (EMBA) Degree Program

The 18-month Executive MBA (EMBA) Worldwide program at the University of Pittsburgh’s Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business is designed to help well-established professionals reach new heights in their careers. Our program equips students with the strategic vision, managerial tools, and global perspective necessary to effectively lead organizations of all types and sizes. Established in 1972, the Katz EMBA Worldwide program is one of the oldest in the world and is consistently ranked by the Financial Times and The Economist as one of the world’s leading EMBA programs.

Harnessing the intellectual capital of the University of Pittsburgh, the Katz EMBA program is taught by faculty internationally respected for their research and consulting. EMBA faculty created a management-focused curriculum that encompasses the business concepts and analytical tools used by senior executives.

To empower our students to lead globally, the Katz EMBA Worldwide program is offered simultaneously in three locations: Pittsburgh, United States, Prague, Czech Republic, and São Paulo, Brazil. Regardless of where students study, they earn the same MBA degree from Katz. Students begin the program together, learn from Katz faculty members, and graduate together. The program’s Global Executive Forums provide the opportunity for students to travel to each location to complete classroom modules, networking activities, and business immersion experiences
