February 07, 2014

Beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 26, Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program Managing Director Kara Keenan will host monthly coffee chats in downtown Philadelphia to provide a new opportunity to learn about the Lafayette Hill-based program.

The chats will be held in the lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, located at Ten Avenue of the Arts in Philadelphia from noon to 2 p.m. Registration is not required.

“We understand that applying to an EMBA program is a big commitment. The coffee chats will provide an informal way for professionals exploring executive MBA programs to learn more about the opportunity and what Smeal has to offer,” said Keenan.

Future coffee chats will be held from noon to 2 p.m. March 26, April 23 and May 21 in the Ritz-Carlton lounge.

The Smeal Executive Master of Business Administration Program also offers information sessions at the ACE Conference Center in suburban Philadelphia, where classes are held on alternating weekends. The next information session will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. March 8.

If prospective students are unable to attend scheduled events, the Smeal EMBA admissions staff also offer individual appointments.
