Janina Marie Tatar
Professional MBA


What is one of your favorite things to do in Pittsburgh?
In the winter, ice skate at PPG ice rink downtown. In the summer, enjoy a bike ride or walk the Three Rivers Heritage trail.

What is something people may not know about you?
I am absolutely fascinated by other cultures and ways of life. I try to visit a new city, state, or country at least once a year.

Why'd you choose the Professional MBA program?
I choose the Professional MBA night classes because they are convenient to get to after work and all the classes are offered online if I didn't want a campus-based class. Advancing my career didn't mean not being able to continue working in the meantime.

What is your favorite team?
My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins. The interviews of Gino have always been the greatest. I studied undergrad as a Youngstown State Penguin. I'm partial to penguins now. First thing I go see at the zoo.

In my free time, I like to...
I like to kayak from North Shore with my Yorkie, Emmie.
