Philadelphia, PA - Although the two in-state schools don’t meet on the football field, that doesn’t mean there isn’t competition for top students. Witness Temple University’s billboard in the middle of Pitt’s campus and Pitt’s proactive recruitment events across the Philadelphia Region.
While students in Pittsburgh have always attended Temple and Philadelphia area students have come to west, the University of Pittsburgh’s College of Business Administration has noticed a trend in some of Philly’s best and brightest choosing Pitt.
- Roughly one in three students in the College of Business Administration are from the Philadelphia metro area
- Ten percent of the alumni mentors who are registered for Pitt’s Mentoring Match program are from the Philadelphia area.
- This academic year, Pitt’s College of Business Administration will host two recruiting events in the Philadelphia area (Malvern to be specific). Last year was the first year hosting one of these events, and Pitt had more than 50 potential students, their parents, and alumni attend.
- This academic year, the College of Business Administration is planning a Career Development Networking Trek where students visit Philadelphia companies and meet with alumni. The College of Business Administration also conducts treks in New York City and Washington D.C.
Where theory meets practice - The Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business and College of Business Administration leverages the opportunities created by our urban location and strong research culture to prepare students to be catalysts for change.
