Our program is designed to help focused individuals advance or change their careers. Katz offers the personalized attention of a small school, but is a part of something big: the University of Pittsburgh, which is a large research institution situated in a major U.S. city. In 2011, 90 percent of Katz students received job offers within 90 days of graduation. Some work for Fortune 500 companies with offices in Pittsburgh and others move to cities across the world.

Make Lasting Connections

The networks students build at Katz are enduring. Our award-winning faculty members mentor students and provide guidance that pays long-term dividends. Our 23,000+ alumni reside in 90 different countries and help open doors for Katz MBAs. Our Career Management team has established strong relationships with corporate recruiters and business leaders, making both groups a regular presence on the Katz campus.

Learn by Doing

Experience-based learning is the backbone of the Katz curriculum. Many of our students complete Consulting Field Projects, which give them the opportunity to work as management consultants, sometimes for multi-billion-dollar companies. Our finance classes are held in our Financial Analysis Lab, a 3,000 square-foot facility that, much like a Wall Street trading room, has a running ticker, tote boards, and bank of computers loaded with analysis software. Students grow their understanding of international business by studying abroad or by completing a Global Research Practicum or Global Business Project.

Stand Out from the Competition

At Katz, students enhance foundations in the business fundamentals by selecting aconcentration. We offer concentrations in finance; information systems; marketing; operations management; organizational behavior and management; and strategy, environment, and organizations.
