Our goal is to transform the way they think so they can lead confidently, no matter what challenges tomorrow brings.”

“What sets our program apart from others is that we are drawing from the core strengths of Katz, the University of Pittsburgh, and UPMC to create a unique experience for our students. They will learn from the best faculty at Katz and the top leaders at UPMC, all while building connections with other students in the program and the University alumni network.” said William T.
