Full-Time MBA Student, Class of 2022
Get to Know Rob
"Before I came to Tepper I took quite a winding path. After I graduated from Penn State I moved to Los Angeles, fulfilling a lifelong dream of acting in television and film. I worked in LA for two years before I decided to get involved in the startup world here in Pittsburgh. For three years leading up to attending CMU, I worked at two robotics startups, focusing on brand strategy. I have been hooked on the entrepreneurial world ever since.
"This is actually one of the main reasons I chose Tepper. Tepper and the larger CMU base have one of the most impressive entrepreneurial ecosystems in the country. The Swartz Center is packed with opportunities to dive into startups, events, and seminars on what seems like a daily basis. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg. CMU connects itself to Pittsburgh in many incredible ways, from the food world to robotics and it is still exciting to uncover new things every day."
