A Pinchot University Education

Pinchot students learn through doing. All our programs incorporate a balanced mix of theory and strategy, instruction and practice, idea generation and concrete tools. Learners explore how to make change within existing organizations, as well as develop new ventures, and then actually do it through a variety of in-class exercises and industry-based learning.

Business Skills to Change the World

Our degrees culminate in a practicum capstone. Learners in our MBA programs develop their own business plan or co-design and implement a project for executive sponsors in existing organizations. Certificate learners complete projects in their specific industry concentrations.
