"One great thing about Tepper is that it is a very diverse set of students in terms of experience, but also cultural backgrounds. I think that variety, whenever you're in the classroom, really brings in a unique set of viewpoints where it's OK to pressure, test, or challenge some assumptions that we all face when we're solving business problems."

Why Choose Tepper MBA

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 you to collaborate across campus to prepare for 21st-century technological changes, with emphasis on the application of technology within business.

We equip you to perform at a higher level through a command of cutting-edge analytics and advanced leadership abilities, a combination 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 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 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. All at one of the leading MBA programs in the world.
