Get to Know Philip

"Before the Tepper School, I was a consulting manager focusing on helping public/private sector clients by enhancing their organizational values through effective risk management.

"I chose Tepper for two main reasons. First, I wanted to be a part of a school that valued the use of data/tech the same way that I did. I firmly believe that data-driven decisions are a critical success factor in any business organization today, and I was always interested in learning and leveraging the latest data analytics tools and techniques in delivering client projects. One of the key differentiators of Tepper is the way that school challenges today’s business problems with its advanced analytical approaches, and this was really attractive to me.

"Secondly, I liked the small class sizes and the close-knit environment. One of my personal goals of getting an MBA is building life-long relationships with smart, like-minded people. Through interaction with the entire Tepper community during the application process, I felt that I was always welcomed and I was comfortable being myself."
