University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School MBA Program

Master of Business Administration (MBA) Student Life

Ingrained in our student culture is an attitude of competition and collaboration. Before MBA classes begin, students complete our orientation and development program, which includes team-building exercises and activities to prepare students for the rigors of upcoming classes.

Katz students have an abundance of clubs and organizations and co-curricular activities at their disposal. Student government boards exist for both the full-time and Professional MBA programs. Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of regional and national case competitions throughout the year.  

The Katz MBA is transformative, in part, because our students are exposed daily to people from different cultures and professional backgrounds. That is a source of strength, as the businesses thriving today are those that adapt, embrace change, and reward innovation.
