MBA Class Profiles

See first-hand: There is no "typical" Tepper School MBA student.

Our mission is to educate students who want to hone their analytical skills and advance their leadership potential regardless of background, industry or field. In fact, many incoming students consider themselves career switchers, seeking the necessary skills that allow for advancement.

While our most recent class has a high proportion of students from science backgrounds, in a typical year, nearly half of our students come from non-technical backgrounds. Trust us, you don't need to be an engineer to achieve great things at the Tepper School.

Our class profiles reflect general backgrounds for our Full-Time, Part-Time Online Hybrid, and Part-Time (Pittsburgh) MBA students.
