The Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program fosters deep working relationships with our faculty who reside with you on site. But you don't just get unrivaled access to your teachers. Our program builds unique bonds with your peers, which is an important part of the learning experience and a lasting career asset. Week-long residential experiences on the Penn State's University Park campus, as well as the global immersion trip, further build your executive MBA community. This community of learners constitutes a lifelong network for you; one that can be tapped long after the program has ended.
