Part-Time Online Hybrid MBA Student, Class of 2021
Get to Know Caroline
"I'm currently living and working in San Diego, CA, and attending the Tepper School through the Part-Time Online Hybrid program. After I graduated from undergrad (mechanical engineering at Penn State), I joined a rotational program which sent me all over the world to a lot of different positions (U.K., China, and Italy working in HR, supplier development, management, etc.) These gave me a valuable, broad set of experiences, but I wanted to return to school for my MBA to learn the business theory I was missing. I also chose Tepper because of the focus on analytics and technology, two things that are very important to me and my career (especially as an engineer). It also didn't hurt that the Tepper School is based in my hometown of Pittsburgh.
"I would like to give some guidance to prospective students who are based internationally and want to know if the Part-Time Online Hybrid is a possible/realistic option for them. I also would like to help the Tepper School bring more women into the MBA program and want to help women feel comfortable joining Tepper."
