Tepper School Full-Time MBA

The Tepper School MBA has a global reputation as a top-20 MBA program notable for our focus on leadership and analytics and is known for our culture built around teamwork, innovation and high performance.


What sets the Tepper School Full-Time MBA apart from our peers is our renowned approach to leadership development alongside advanced analytics training, our tight-knit community and our collaboration with colleges across Carnegie Mellon University.

Our full-time MBA program is two years of study at the main Carnegie Mellon campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Students typically complete a summer internship between year one and year two of the program. 

Leadership and Analytics

Tepper MBAs graduate with the ability to lead at the intersection of business, technology and analytics. Our position within the Carnegie Mellon community allows our students to collaborate across campus, which prepares students for 21st-century technological changes by emphasizing the application of technology within business contexts.

We equip you to perform at a higher level through a command of cutting-edge analytics and advanced leadership abilities; we know that this combination is highly sought-after in the marketplace. Our approach prepares graduates to make better business decisions and successfully implement those decisions. 

Tight-Knit Community 

A top-tier MBA program is defined by more than just the academics. At the Tepper School, the connections you will make — with professors, peers and the campus you’ll call home — will be unlike anything you’ve ever known.

Our classes are smaller because we believe in a culture that values each individual. You’re not just one person in an oversized class. You’re an integral part of an inclusive community.

Even though we are small, opportunities abound. Lead a student club, set off on a trek to Silicon Valley with your classmates, show off your predictive modeling skills at a case competition, sample the seasonal offerings of the local brewpubs or take a hike on some of Pittsburgh’s 200 miles of riverfront trails.

Cross-Campus Collaboration

The new Tepper Quad — part vision, part building — offers an interconnected model for management education and sits at the center of the Carnegie Mellon campus, elevating the business school as an embedded partner for all seven colleges.

A popular destination inside the Tepper Quad is the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship, a hub for developing new ideas and businesses for the emerging technology revolution.

While you’re learning alongside business researchers and professors, you’ll also interact with engineers, architects, robotics designers, computer scientists and other brilliant, creative minds from around the world. That’s what we call collaboration.
