Get to Know David

"Before Tepper, I was in business development strategy at Atlantic 57 (the consulting & creative agency of Atlantic Media) in Washington, D.C. I am determined to attend a baseball game in all 30 MLB stadiums before I turn 30 and spend a night camping in all 61 national parks before I turn 61.

"I'm pivoting toward a career in sustainable operations, so I chose Tepper because it's one of the premier schools in the country for operations, and I am able to earn a concentration in sustainability as well."
