Our Part-Time Flex MBA was designed with Pittsburgh's working professionals in mind.

Top-Ranked MBA Program, Pittsburgh-Based Cohort

Redefine what's possible with a Part-Time Flex MBA program situated at the nexus of data and human intelligence. You'll emerge ready to unleash the power of data.

You’ll tackle the same tough, rewarding core coursework as students in the Tepper Full-Time MBA program, and be taught by the same dynamic faculty. And you’ll earn the same STEM-designated degree, in a flexible format that blends online and in-person learning.

Lasting Personal Connections

The people in your MBA program often become lifelong friends and professional connections you keep for your whole career. At Tepper, we facilitate these personal connections through on-campus electives and Access Weekends.

When you’re on campus your home base is the Tepper Quad — a lively innovation hub at the heart of Carnegie Mellon, located in the center of Pittsburgh, a thriving community of technological growth and entrepreneurship.

Professional Growth

How will you shape the future of business? You’ll need cross-functional expertise and a healthy dose of humility to lead across disciplines and break through boundaries.

Working with your own leadership coach, you’ll create a customized leadership development plan to guide you to greater empathy, self-awareness, and effectiveness — preparing you to lead tomorrow’s workforce with insight.

It’s where you’ll realize your leadership potential. You’ll graduate ready to manage people, build networks of influence, inspire others to join in your pursuit of a common goal, and execute that goal with excellence.

Are You a "Right Fit" Candidate?

The Admit.me Index (AMI) is a free, automated profile review for MBA candidates. Much like a credit report, the AMI gives you a candidate profile score and the details of what affected your score. 

Get your report in just 3 minutes and see how your profile compares to the "perfect" candidate and to the schools you are targeting.
