Looking to learn more about the Katz MBA or Specialized Masters program? Our Katz Student Ambassadors are here to help! They can tell you about a day in the life of an MBA or Specialized Master’s student, as well as provide information about our programs from the student perspective. Feel free to reach out to any of our ambassadors. They can also help you schedule an on campus visit, lunch or coffee with current students, or a tour of Mervis Hall. Each student profile includes their contact information and concentration.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

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.

Hannah Swoish

CBA '20

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.
