Immerse Yourself in Global Business

At Pitt's Katz Graduate School of Business, we ensure that our graduate students are well-versed in global business, no matter which industry or career they pursue. Our goal is to mold them for leadership roles in international business, and to date, we've been successful: Katz alumni work in nearly 90 countries worldwide. (Check out the story of Anthony Williams.)

We prepare Katz graduate students by developing their understanding of emerging and established markets, both through classroom experiences and international travel. Through our International Business Center and the Katz Executive MBA Worldwide program, which operates in Pittsburgh, Prague, and São Paulo, we offer a unique mix of immersion-based experiences.
