Katz Graduate School of Business

About Katz Graduate School of Business

At the University of Pittsburgh Katz Graduate School of Business, we’ve designed our program around one constant: Business never stops reinventing itself — and neither should our students. But true agility depends on a solid foundation. That’s why we provide a thorough grounding in the fundamentals combined with an emphasis on experienced-based learning, where hands-on, applied projects and consulting fieldwork are built into the curriculum. This, along with an array of global experiences, allows our graduates to immediately add value to organizations of all types and sizes.

What Recent Grads Say See All 5 Comments >

The real world skills I gained through the experience-based learning approach at Katz will help me more in my career as a corporate lawyer than all three years of my legal education combined.
