Get to Know Tanawat

"I am from Thailand. Before I joined MBA Tepper, I worked as an auditor at KPMG and M&A consultant at PwC for six and a half years.

"At that time, I chose to study an MBA at Tepper because I would like to study business strategy in the analytical perspectives. I strongly believe that Tepper is the first pioneer business school that brings the analytics tools to make a strategic decision for doing business. So after my MBA, I can bring these state-of-the-art experiences from inside and outside of the classroom to work in a consulting role.

"Also, the Tepper class is inclusive and supportive. My classmates come from many parts of the world and industries from business to mathematics. This brings diverse perspectives into the classroom. We are a small class so our connection is tight-knit. We are ready to help each other accomplish individual goals."

"Outside of the class, I like to play board games with friends and go out for food and dessert. My favorite food is Asian and I'm so surprised that there are so many decent Asian restaurants in Pittsburgh.  I can enjoy eating out with my classmates every week."
