John Pracht
Professional MBA


What is one of your favorite things to do in Pittsburgh?

I had Pirates Season tickets for many years and love walking / running on the trail from the Heinz Lofts to PNC Park. I also participated in 2015's Pittsburgh Marathon Relay and plan to do it again in the future.

What is something people may not know about you?
I am a software developer at FedEx in Robinson, working mainly on mobile applications.

Why'd you choose the Professional MBA program?
I chose the MBA program at Duquesne because I believe it will open doors in the future. Several higher-level managers at my organization attended Duquesne for their MBA. I was satisfied with my undergraduate degree from this University and therefore felt comfortable with what my experience would be returning for my masters.

What is your favorite movie?
My favorite movie has been Titanic since I was about 8 years old.

In my free time, I like to...
Play recreational sports, especially baseball. I am part of the NABA Pittsburgh fast-pitch league. I also love watching HGTV and spending time with my fiance, Jen.
