Why Choose the Tepper Part-Time Accelerated MBA?

The Tepper Part-Time Accelerated MBA is for business graduates or individuals with undergraduate business coursework experience who want to earn an MBA through a part-time online format in a two-year time frame.

The Part-Time Accelerated MBA may be for you if:

  • You have 3-7 years of work experience.
  • In the last 10 years, you have taken accounting, finance, marketing, microeconomics, and operations courses from an accredited undergraduate institution.
  • You want the flexibility of an online degree program at a top MBA program.

Identical Degree. Faster.

In the Tepper Part-Time Accelerated MBA program, you’ll get challenging and rewarding coursework taught by the professors who lead the Full-Time program. You’ll pursue an analytics-focused curriculum in a part-time online hybrid format, but in less time than the Tepper Part-Time Online Hybrid program.

Because students in the Part-Time Accelerated MBA program have earned an undergraduate business degree or have taken core business courses in the last 10 years, they receive credit for their acquired business knowledge and take refresher coursework in their first semester.

In the Part-Time Accelerated program, you’ll earn the same STEM-designated MBA — but faster— and be ready to lead at the speed of change.

Lasting Connections

Community is a hallmark of the Tepper MBA experience.

Through our online hybrid format, you’ll complement your online MBA with in-person and remote  Access Weekends — immersive opportunities to connect with your colleagues, take classes, and participate in professional development activities.

Both in Pittsburgh and online, you will tackle team-based projects, soak up diverse perspectives, and strengthen bonds with faculty and fellow students that will continue throughout your career. You’ll forge close ties with faculty and alumni, as well as with your classmates.

Are You a "Right Fit" Candidate?

The Index (AMI) — a free, automated profile review for MBA candidates — gives you a candidate profile score, details of what affected your score, and recommends opportunities to strengthen your candidacy. 

Get your report in just 5 minutes and see how your profile compares to the "perfect" candidate and to the schools you are targeting. The score is not expressly indicative of your likelihood of being admitted into the Tepper MBA program and we encourage you to contact our admissions team to discuss your results.
