Get to Know Kathleen

"Before coming to Tepper for my MBA, I was a senior consultant with IBM. Though I’m a Pittsburgh native, I've been living and working in Philadelphia for the past four years. I knew I wanted to come back to the Pittsburgh area to work at my family business (a precision manufacturing company), and one of the main reasons I chose to attend Tepper was the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship. I plan to use my time at Tepper to build a new, analytical skillset that will support my entrepreneurial goals. I’m also thrilled to be back in Pittsburgh."
