The University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School

Interdisciplinary Collaboration

Expanding our reach across disciplinary boundaries complements commitment to experience-based learning, entrepreneurship, globalism and value chain and supply chain management. Collaboration broadens our students' knowledge beyond what is gained in a traditional business education, preparing them to apply their skills in fields other than their own. Pitt Business has developed numerous interdisciplinary opportunities in research and education and partners with other areas across University of Pittsburgh campuses.

The Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business now offers six joint and dual degrees that allow students to earn their MBA while working simultaneously on a law degree or a master's degree in engineering, public and international affairs, or international development.

Our faculty work with faculty from engineering, medicine and other schools in researching and developing processes and systems to bring innovations to market through business theory. Seven Pitt Business faculty members hold secondary appointments in other University of Pittsburgh Schools, including the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Law.
