Applying to the Tepper MBA Program

Though our standards are high and our admissions process is competitive, our ideal student does not fit a rigid, predictable profile.


We welcome students from diverse academic, professional, and personal backgrounds, and seek exceptional individuals who have made an impact in whatever path they have chosen. Our MBA admissions process is holistic in that we consider all aspects of the application equally to determine an overall fit with your background, goals, and leadership potential to the Tepper School's culture, curriculum, and community.

Your Tepper MBA application will contain a variety of components that provide the admissions committee information to assess your candidacy for our MBA program. Through our review process, we do not assign specific weights to the various parts of the application.

Note to All MBA Applicants

To safeguard the integrity of the admissions process, Carnegie Mellon University routinely uses a third party company, Re Vera, to conduct verification procedures of all candidates who accept our offer of admission.
