Travel to Penn State

Penn State University Park campus is located in State College, Pa. The University Park Airport (SCE) serves the region with daily flights to hubs in Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington/Dulles, and Atlanta via  Delta, United Express, and American/USAirways. For our guests in the meals and lodging plan, Penn State Executive Programs will arrange shuttle service to and from the airport located five miles from campus. Once you've arrived on campus, all activities will be within a short walking distance.


We're pleased to announce that participants may now select their own choice of accommodations for the program or opt for our traditional meals and lodging plan.  Those who do will stay at The Nittany Lion Inn or The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel on the University Park campus. If you book your own hotel, you are responsible for your lodging, travel to and from the program, and "on your own" dinners. The program fee covers tuition, materials, lunch, breaks, and the group dinner. 

Executive Education Facilities

Our programs are held in the Executive Education Center or The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel, all on the Penn State University Park campus. We also have the flexibility to deliver programs at locations nationally and around the globe.


Penn State Executive Programs will plug your organization and its people into a network of thought leaders from the Penn State Smeal College of Business and beyond, faculty members who are award-winning teachers, researchers, consultants, and practitioners. They are individuals who understand today's leaders and the critical challenges they face, and will work with you to offer guidance before, during, and after each program.
