Three opportunities to learn about Penn State's new Pittsburgh MBA

The Sam and Irene Black School of Business at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will host three free information sessions that introduce Penn State’s new Pittsburgh-area master's in business administration (MBA) program to prospective graduate students.

A Penn State MBA now can be earned entirely in the Pittsburgh region. Classes generally will meet four times a semester at the Regional Learning Alliance, 850 Cranberry Woods Drive, Cranberry Township; the remainder of the coursework is completed in a convenient online environment.

This new degree option is offered in partnership with the Pittsburgh-area campuses of Beaver, Greater Allegheny and New Kensington.

The free MBA information sessions take place on Monday, Sept. 17, at the Regional Learning Alliance; Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Sheraton Station Square, 300 W. Station Square Dr.; and Monday, Oct. 8 at the Regional Learning Alliance. Each starts at 6 p.m. MBA faculty and admissions representatives will discuss the curriculum, course content and expectations, credit exemptions, application requirements, tuition reimbursement, scholarships and GMAT preparation support.
