Ranked among the world's finest programs, the Katz Executive MBA Worldwide Program prepares high-talent professionals with significant experience to move up to more strategic roles and enables them achieve greater success in global markets.
The Katz EMBA program operates on three continents. Students have the opportunity to enroll in one of three locations: Europe (Prague, Czech Republic), North America (Pittsburgh, US), and South America (São Paulo, Brazil).
A hallmark of the Katz EMBA program is the Global Executive Forums. These forums are one-week trips that students take to each location, giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in international markets and gain networking exposure with foreign classmates and business leaders. The Global Executive Forums are central to understanding business in new global contexts.
Globally Respected Degree
The Katz EMBA program awards its graduates a Master in Business Administration (MBA) degree. Students learn as a single cohort - no matter which location they enroll in, they earn the exact same degree. They complete the same curriculum and study under the same faculty: Katz's renowned professors are flown from the U.S. into the Prague and São Paulo locations to lead study modules in person, thus ensuring the same excellent quality of executive education.
The Katz EMBA program is consistently ranked among top programs in Central and Eastern Europe and has been active in the region for more than 20 years—longer than any other program.
Katz is among the few U.S. schools in the CEE region to offer a program accredited by the AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Since AACSB accreditation is the universal gold standard in business school certification, the Katz MBA degree is respected all over the world.
Senior, Talented Students
In an Executive MBA program, students learn not only from professors, but also from their colleagues in the class through frequent team assignments and interaction with experienced executives from various backgrounds. This is why strict admission requirements are an important guarantee of the program’s quality.
