An overview of the locations where the Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program meets in Philadelphia and University Park.

Although the Penn State Smeal Executive MBA Program is based in Philadelphia, that doesn't mean our students come only from southeast Pennsylvania. Each year students north to Connecticut, south to Virginia, and west to Pittsburgh enroll in the program. In the past, students have even commuted from the Midwest and from as far south as the Carolinas.

Union League Liberty Hill


The Smeal EMBA is based at Union League Liberty Hill. Just 10 miles northwest of Center City, the facility is located only 30 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and a few minutes from commuter rail service. The center provides everything you need to focus on your personal development including modern classrooms and networking spaces, on-site dining options, and spacious overnight accommodations to help you recharge.

Penn State University Park Campus

The first and third segments of the program include six-day residences on Penn State's University Park campus. During this weeklong immersion, you will stay at the Penn Stater Hotel & Conference Center and take part in sessions located in the Business Building, home to the Smeal College of Business. Dedicated in 2005, the building offers modern architecture and state-of-the-art learning technology that connects thousands of Smeal students, faculty, and staff.
