• From the first day of Diversity Student Weekend, it was obvious that the Katz School has an amazing support system. While other schools have a very competitive feel, everyone at Katz, from the staff to the students, want you to succeed and become the best you can be.

    Jasmeen Kaur, MBA '18


  • I was overwhelmed with support and guidance from Katz students and alumni. They were willing to answer questions and offer advice for success. I knew this school was for me when I attended Diversity Student Weekend and felt like part of the Katz family.

    This weekend is a great opportunity to explore Pittsburgh; interact with faculty, current students, staff, alumni and community partners; learn about our various programs; experience what it’s like to be a member of our Katz community; and celebrate Katz's culture of inclusion.

    This two-day Diversity Weekend focuses on Full time MBA opportunities for prospective domestic women, the LGBTQIA+ community, under-represented racial/ethnic groups (specifically, African American, Hispanic/Latinx, and Native American students) as well as Current or Former Military students.
