At the heart of Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper is where you’ll learn to apply imagination, creativity, and a deep appreciation for teamwork to the insights gained through advanced analytics. Collaborating closely in diverse teams, you’ll unleash the power of data and tap into emerging technologies to come up with innovative solutions.

"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."
