PITTSBURGH-The University of Pittsburgh's Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business will offer the new Katz Immersion MBA (KIMBA) at the Greensburg campus beginning September 2009. That program, designed for working professionals, will assemble students from diverse experiences and provide an intensive MBA education by immersing students in coursework for three days a month over a two-year period. Admission requirements, total credits, and the curriculum design are consistent with the existing Katz School part-time MBA program.

Classes will be offered one weekend per month, Friday through Sunday. Students will be enrolled in a six-term, cohort-based program and be required to complete 52.5 credits to earn the MBA degree.

To be admitted to the program, students are required to have completed at least three years of post-undergraduate work experience. Course instructors primarily will be Katz School faculty from the Oakland campus.
