Case studies and examples often center on the global business environment. For any given year approximately 40% of Katz students are from abroad. All of this gives Katz an unmistakable international flavor. However, one of the main driving forces in the global outlook of the School has been its Executive MBA Worldwide Program. It operates on three continents: in Pittsburgh, in Europe (Czech Republic) and South America (Brazil), thus providing organizations in each region with the support they need to equip their executives with the knowledge, skills, networks and competencies required from strategic roles in the global economy. Organizations such as DuPont, Alcoa, PPG, ABB, US Steel, Unilever, Bayer, and Kennametal count on us for talent development and executive education across the three continents.

AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools, worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.
