The Consortium: Elevating U.S. Underrepresented Minorities in Business Education

Andres Michel, MBA '20

Internship: Ecolab, Corporate Finance

What is your favorite Tepper memory?

My favorite Tepper memory is when a student asked for help on an assignment and five classmates jumped to assist. This is the Tepper culture of always paying it forward.

Why did you choose the Tepper School?

I felt welcomed from my very first campus visit. The small class size creates a great learning environment by helping each other and collaborating in teams.

What is the greatest benefit of CGSM: 

The CGSM Family! Both within Tepper and CGSM, the culture of support and connectedness is embedded within the fabric of each individual. My Tepper journey was initiated through a conversation with a CGSM fellow and my overall MBA journey continues to be enhanced through these relationships.

Shetara Edden, MBA '20

Internship: Walmart, Marketing

Track: Management of Innovation and Product Development 

Why I Chose Tepper:

Tepper excels in leadership and analytics and those are the two areas I wanted to grow in. Coming from a marketing background, I wasn't exposed to the technology and data analytics skills needed to excel in a marketing leadership role in a tech company. I knew Tepper would help me close that gap and re-enter the workforce as an industry leader.
