Life at Tepper: All Work and No Play? Hardly.

Ask an MBA student what sets the Tepper School student experience apart, and they will answer you with one simple word: community.


The connections you’ll make at the Tepper School will be unlike anything you’ve experienced. You’re not just one person in an oversized incoming class. You’re an integral part of a tight-knit, inclusive community.

Because we are small but mighty, opportunities for involvement are wide-ranging. From student clubs and case competitions to international treks and local brewpub tours, you’ll be amazed at how much you can do in two short years.

"At the Tepper School, we all know each other really well thanks in part to the small class size. In a short amount of time, this community feels like family. Everyone here is incredibly supportive and inclusive of all cultures and backgrounds. My classmates genuinely want to learn from one another. We're all here for the same reasons — to learn, grow and push each other to succeed. I am so glad I chose the Tepper School to pursue my MBA because I know these friendships will last a lifetime!"
