Welcome to the Penn State Smeal MBA Program
WELCOME and congratulations on your admission to the Penn State Smeal MBA Program. The next two years will be an exciting and enriching time for all of you. While we are sure you are looking forward to furthering your education with us, we also realize that embarking on this new adventure is met with a certain amount of anxiousness. Moving to a new area and navigating the world of academia can, at first, seem quite overwhelming. This is why we have created this site for you -- a site designed to provide a wide range of detail on university resources, State College and the surrounding community, commonly referred to as “Happy Valley.” Please browse the navigation items below and, as you prepare for your transition, please be sure to consult the Incoming Student Checklist to determine what should be completed prior to your arrival. Additionally, as time progresses, please be sure to continually check this site as details regarding our mandatory orientation program are posted.
