Established in Brazil in 1999, the Katz Executive MBA Worldwide program is the only American Executive MBA in the country. The Katz Master of Business Administration degree is accredited by AACSB International, the Executive MBA Council, and ANAMBA. The program has also been ranked as the 6th best Executive MBA program among U.S. public institutions (Financial Times, 2014).
All Katz Executive Worldwide MBA courses are taught in English by faculty from the University of Pittsburgh, one of the leading public research universities in the United States. Professors travel to São Paulo and use the same program and course materials as from their classes in Pittsburgh. The program lasts 18 months, with classes scheduled once a month from Wednesday to Sunday. More details can be found on our class schedule page.
During the program, students from all three Katz Executive MBA locations meet on four separate occasions for Global Executive Forums. The forums are held in each of our locations: São Paulo; Pittsburgh, United States; and Prague, Czech Republic. Each forum brings our global class together to learn as one and to gain firsthand experience in international business.
