Part-Time Flex MBA Student, Class of 2021
Get to Know Emily
"I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and attended Carnegie Mellon for undergrad. I graduated in 2010 with a BS in decision science and Hispanic studies. After graduating, I taught English in Madrid for a few years. I've been at my current job since 2013, working as a consultant for DDI, a leadership consulting firm.
"I chose Tepper because I've gotten great exposure to the people side of leadership through my current job, but I was lacking true management and operational knowledge. I could not be more satisfied with my decision to come to Tepper. Knowing I wanted to continue working while I got an MBA, Tepper immediately became my top choice. The faculty are world-class and my classmates are supportive, inclusive, and professionally diverse.
"Even though I didn't originally intend to always stay in Pittsburgh, with each new opportunity I've embraced in Pittsburgh, I've learned about a different side of the city and grown to love it even more."
