Penn State Connections

Students in the Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program benefit from their connection to the Penn State community.

The Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program brings together a diverse group of people from many different industries. You'll forge strong friendships with them and with your faculty. And those friendships will last throughout your career and life.

The network of connections you build here is bigger than you can imagine. When you join Smeal you're joining one of the largest, most influential alumni organizations in the world—Penn State. And one of the most active: membership to it opens doors wherever you are. So when you graduate, we don't think of it as saying goodbye. You're saying hello to a world of opportunity.

"Two words: Penn State. They make the best introduction in business."
Greg Gatesman, Director of Private Banking and Trust Platforms, Merrill Lynch

As Milton Eisenhower, former Penn State President and brother of U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower, said of our alumni, "they are the real interpreters of the University to the people of the nation." The proof of this is found in the vast number of companies and organizations led by our alumni today. The influence of Penn State reaches every corner of the country; indeed you can go almost anywhere in the world and find a Penn State connection.
