The Katz Admissions Office is located in Suite 301 of Mervis Hall. Upon entering the building, take the elevators to the third floor. Turn left out of the elevator, and proceed into the suite on your right.

Parking During Your Visit

Whether you are visiting for a group event or on an individual basis, we are happy to reimburse you for parking in the public garage at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, located at Fifth Avenue and Bigelow Boulevard. Upon your arrival in the MBA suite, notify an MBA admissions representative so that we may provide you with parking validation. Mervis Hall is about a 10-minute walk from the Soldiers and Sailors Garage, so please plan accordingly.

Other campus parking options include metered street parking on Roberto Clemente Drive and private open air lots located on Joncaire Street, directly behind and down the hill from Mervis Hall. The private lots currently charge a flat fee of $5 per day. You may choose these options at your own expense.

I picked Pitt Business because competitively they are one of the best in the nation. Publicly ranked #11 nationally out of all business programs. I was also very intrigued with their message of “From the Classroom, To the City, To the World.

The business school truly gives students opportunities to make their college experience meaningful. But, it is not just a school where you go to earn a degree; it is a home where you will find a place to succeed. It’s not just four years, it’s for life.
