Get to Know Chase

"I attended West Virginia University for my undergraduate degree, double majoring in Accounting and Finance. Immediately after graduation I obtained my CPA and began working for a local community bank in northern West Virginia."

"My interests include working on and restoring classic cars. I currently have an Austin Healey I am working on. When I am not around cars, I am either snowboarding, biking, building a fish tank, or enjoying time with friends and family."

"I have been wanting to attend Carnegie Mellon since high school and finally saw my opportunity as I was researching MBA options. The bank I work for is part of a family business, so being able to stay entrenched in the day to day operations and work toward my MBA at the same time was a necessity. With the Part-Time Online Hybrid, it was a perfect program where I could continue to progress in my career while learning at one of the best institutions in the country. For me, Tepper is a dream come true. I am able to make money while going to school and directly apply things learned in class immediately in my career."
