Celebrate 15 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 15 years since we walked the halls of Posner Hall. In honor of this special milestone and in memory of our Tepper School experience and education, let's join together in support of the Tepper School.

This year we are challenging our class to reach 30% class gift participation. We need your help to meet our goal of 75 Class of 2008 Tepper School donors!

Our class unlocked the $25,000 challenge provided by the Class of 2008 Reunion Committee by exceeding 15 new donors between March 1 and April 22!

Tepper Class of 2008 Campaign

By contributing to our class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper Faculty Initiatives Fund or Tepper School Fellowships.

Tepper Faculty Initiatives

This fund supports the Tepper School’s esteemed faculty research and teaching programs and is essential in the recruitment and retention of the School’s top tier faculty.

Tepper faculty research is at the forefront of the intersection of business and societally relevant issues like COVID-19, healthcare, sustainability, income inequality, and blockchain. Not only do they bring esteem to the Tepper School through their publications, but their expertise adds depth to their courses and fosters MBA graduates ready to tackle real business problems.

Tepper School Fellowships

Last year, 508 graduate students received financial aid through Tepper School Fellowships and other awards, making a Tepper School education possible for our diverse and high-quality students by reducing the financial burden of tuition.

While we know the Tepper MBA is worth it, the rising cost of tuition can make attending a high caliber business school like Tepper out of reach without acquiring significant student loan debt. Fellowships help to reduce the amount of debt MBAs will graduate with, making the program more accessible to deserving students.

Help our Tepper Class of 2008 leave a positive legacy for current and future students and faculty by making a class gift contribution today.
