Student Experience

Teamwork is a critical element in the Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program. Our students bring years of experience working at some of the top companies in the region to classroom discussions and work sessions. Course weekends are designed to allow for collaboration, interaction, and deeper engagement in projects and materials.

Residency experiences on Penn State's University Park campus and the week-long global immersion further strengthen the bonds of the community in the program.

The Smeal EMBA community provides a network of peers whose talent, expertise, and experience will remain a resource for students to tap into long after graduation.

In the News: "When I went in for a site visit, it blew my mind. There was a lot going on in the classroom, and the students were all accomplished businesspeople. To top it off, they weren't just listening and taking notes--they were engaged and participating." --Stephen Rigo, Class of 2007, Smeal Executive MBA Program
