Get to Know Jeff

"I consider Chicago to be my hometown, having spent 15 years prior to Tepper in the city and surrounding suburbs. I studied civil engineering at the University of Illinois before starting my seven-year stint in data and analytics technology consulting at a boutique in Chicago. Having been a career consultant, I was dedicated to pursuing consulting as a career after MBA, with the ultimate goal of pivoting into strategy consulting."

"I chose Tepper for its analytical-focused curriculum, breadth of leadership development opportunities, and small class sizes. Having a data and analytics background, I see the applications of analytics in a variety of industries and functions, and Tepper is the ideal place to marry my past professional experiences with any new skills I develop."

"Ask me about moving to Pittsburgh, data and analytics, consulting lifestyle, or when I think the Chicago Bulls will become relevant again."
