Diversity Weekend

Diversity Weekend 2017 has passed. Registration for 2018 will open in the summer.

We pride ourselves on a diverse student population and truly believe that it creates a richer, more valuable experience for you. That’s why we host our annual Diversity Weekend and invite you to join us to learn more about how you will benefit from the Tepper School experience.

What Happens During Diversity Weekend?

Throughout the weekend, Tepper School representatives highlight the value of the MBA and the strengths of our program, as well as showcase the differences and advantages of our diverse community, program and global alumni network. We also share tips on the MBA application process as well as financing your MBA.

The 2017 Diversity Weekend Keynote Speaker was Russell Ewing, Senior Portfolio Manager in Goldman Sachs Asset Management.

When and Where Is Diversity Weekend?

The Diversity Weekend is held on Carnegie Mellon University's campus in Pittsburgh. More information about Diversity Weekend 2018 will be available in the summer.
