MBA Curriculum and Courses

The Tepper MBA program has become a STEM-designated program, a reflection of the quality and rigor of our MBA program, and the emphasis throughout the curriculum on analytics and data-driven decision making.


Our dual focus on strategic analytics and leadership development is what gives Tepper MBAs an advantage in the marketplace.

We've implemented a number of changes over the past two years to strengthen students’ foundational experience in management science, including new course offerings that intersect with business and technology; interdisciplinary experiential learning opportunities; and the adoption of more sophisticated analytical tools used throughout the program.
