At Pitt's Katz Graduate School of Business, we believe that real-world experience is the best teacher. For that reason, we built our business school around experience-based learning outcomes. This approach prepares Katz students to think on their feet, to make bold decisions when it counts. It is why they as Pitt graduates are attaining leadership roles in global business, despite the competitive pressures of today's marketplace. 
We offer our graduate students a unique menu of experience-based learning: they can choose from consulting projects, client fellowships, case competitions, classroom case studies, and management simulations. Think of it as "learning in motion," as it brings the business fundamentals taught by our professors vividly to life.
