Why Choose Tepper Flex MBA

Our Part-Time Flex MBA is not like other Pittsburgh MBA programs. The Tepper School is the right place for Pittsburgh professionals to take their career to the next level. 


Access Weekends — taking place six times a year at CMU's campus in Pittsburgh — give you an in-person experience with classmates and faculty at the start of every core course.

Following the weekend, interactive, online core classes take place just two evenings a week, allowing you to attend from anywhere. Once you complete the core, you have the choice to take elective courses on campus or online, allowing you to tailor your study to your schedule. 

Thinking you may want to switch to full-time later? No problem — you have that option.

Same Top-Ranked MBA

Our part-time program has the same rigorous curriculum focused on analytics and leadership taught in weekly live sessions by the same faculty who teach our full-time students. No matter how you earn it, it's a Tepper MBA.

Community and Professional Growth

Access Weekends include more than just classes. You'll attend leadership workshops and corporate visits, meet with career counselors, or work on your personalized professional development plan for part-time students — the Tepper Roadmap. The roadmap provides a framework to focus your efforts to advance your growth during and after the program. Most importantly, you'll build relationships with your classmates and alumni.

All the Tepper Advantages

The Tepper MBA experience isn't just about the classroom experience. Top-ranked career services, student clubs, and leadership training are essential components of the Tepper School advantage. All of these are available to you as a Pittsburgh-based part-time student.
