Undergraduate Business Curriculum

Our curriculum prepares you for where business is going: a future fueled by data, powered by technology, and unleashed by human intelligence.

In your first year, you'll take core business courses while building foundational skills for analysis, communications, and context through additional courses from across Carnegie Mellon. With one of the lowest student-to-faculty ratios of the top-10 undergraduate business programs, Tepper faculty enjoy taking a more personal interest in your success.

An Unmatched Approach to Building In-Demand Skills

"Tepper students leave this program with considerable quantitative skills and experiences, something that is unique among undergraduate business schools. This gives us a leg up in the real world."

How Our Business Curriculum Is Structured

Our business curriculum is designed around core courses that include business, economics, mathematics, and statistics course requirements. Our eight concentrations allow students to go deep in their specific business area of interest. Courses build on leading business practices while being informed by the innovative research of our faculty.

The first-year curriculum is devoted to building foundational analysis, communication, and context skills through courses in economics, math, and the liberal arts. First-year students also enroll in Business Science, a course that sets the foundation for their business education.

After your first semester, you will discover that our curriculum is flexible and allows you to maximize your undergraduate studies to achieve your academic goals. During sophomore and junior years, you’ll concentrate on your business core classes, electives, and general education courses and select a minor. Senior year includes a senior capstone course and is flexible enough to finish your degree requirements in the pathway that works best for you.
