The Tepper Quad
The CMUniverse, located at the heart of campus, is where the intersection of business, technology and analytics comes alive.
Opening in fall 2018, the much-anticipated Tepper Quad is the physical realization of a new model of higher education. The innovation hub — with the Tepper School as its center — interconnects all seven campus colleges while promoting an enhanced ecosystem of cross-campus collaboration. Students will learn from management researchers and professors while interacting, networking and dreaming alongside entrepreneurs, architects, robotics designers, computer scientists and other brilliant, creative minds from around the world.
This is business education for the 21st century.
