MBA Concentrations

Tepper MBA students can customize their degrees by selecting concentrations based on areas of interest.

Explore the possibilities. Our MBA concentrations — from traditional to cutting edge — offer the opportunity to dive deeper into something you already know or strike out in a new direction — or both! Unleashing your future career can start right here.

You are required to complete one concentration, but most students pursue three or four. An MBA concentration is not declared; once you take three or more elective classes in a subject area, your concentration is automatic.

The following concentrations are available in the online format: Business Technology, Communications, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Marketing, Operations Management, Organizational Behavior, and Strategy. Part-time students who have the ability to take on-campus classes during the day have the opportunity to pursue remaining concentrations.
