TRANSFORMATION HAPPENS HERE
Weekends at the Chubb Hotel & Conference Center are about networking and growth, from discussion-filled class sessions on Fridays and Saturdays and team-based project work to reconnecting with classmates and professors. Each Penn State Smeal Executive MBA weekend is an intense business immersion designed to maximize time away from work and family.
We periodically sit down with students—fresh from class—to talk about what they just learned. Their responses showcase the breadth, depth, and immediate applicability of the Smeal EMBA experience. Check back as we add new students and perspectives.
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
One of the greatest benefits of the Smeal EMBA format is the opportunity to connect with other driven students like you from across the Mid-Atlantic as well as highly ranked business faculty from the Smeal College of Business. Each weekend—after classes end—offers opportunities to discuss common business challenges, tap into new perspectives, and strengthen your network.
COLLABORATION DRIVES GROWTH
With teamwork as a critical aspect of the Smeal EMBA experience, you will work throughout the first year alongside the same small group of fellow students on a variety of deliverables including papers, business case analyses, and presentations. Class weekends provide the chance to meet face-to-face with your team, continuing discussions that happen via conference calls, emails, and text threads during the weeks between classes.
