MBA

The Tepper School MBA program prepares students to be the next generation of business leaders in an ever-fluid and advancing business world.


The MBA program’s agile, data-driven and innovative curriculum and its focus on experiential learning and real-world problem-solving isn’t just a response to the technology-driven business landscape; it is our anticipation of and contribution to the changing needs of the modern business world.

As a Tepper MBA, you will be taught the analytical skills required to understand the complexities of business and the leadership skills needed to lead people and organizations at a higher, more advanced level of performance. Key concentrationstracks and our unique mini-semester system enable students to study, in-depth, in the career field of their choosing. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 13:1, not only will you have access to world-class researchers who are solving today’s business problems, but they will know you by name.

With the opening of the Tepper Quad in fall 2018, MBA students will have even greater access to Carnegie Mellon’s community of talented engineers, entrepreneurs, researchers, computer scientists and artists, providing ample opportunities for real-world problem-solving and application.
