Get to Know Mable

"Prior to Tepper, I worked in operations at a top investment bank. After a number of years in the industry, I yearned for more knowledge and change, which is why I chose to apply to Tepper.

"Tepper was one of the top schools on my list, as they are known to have quant-heavy courses, which was exactly what I wanted. Once accepted, I received emails and phone calls from students and advisors who went out of their way to help me weigh my options and ultimately helped me with my decision to join Tepper.

"I chose Tepper because I am grateful for the community I have so far; not only have they helped me in various aspects of my transition from a professional to a student, but I have also received advice and an extremely helpful network that awed me. I can truly say every individual that I am surrounded by here not only strives for the best, but they also do the same for others. The network at Tepper is truly incomparable."
