Get to Know Dana

"I was working in a civil engineering company as a construction site supervision engineer in Israel before Tepper. My main reason for choosing Tepper was that I wanted to switch industries and pivot from engineering to finance.

"I knew I wanted to be in corporate finance and believed that the resources that Tepper offers for career switchers are amazing. Students receive guidance from the Master's Career Center and Accelerate Leadership Center, and they learn from the strength of academics and clubs that help prepare students for the career they really want, whether or not they have previous experience in that field.

"This is my first time in Pittsburgh, and what I like about it is that it is a small city with an urban feel. It is easy to get around the city and explore different places. People are also very friendly."
