Education Excellence

We will educate and prepare individuals to be creative problem solvers, analytical thinkers, value creators, ethical decision makers and transformative leaders.

The Tepper School’s educational programs include Professional Masters’ programs, Undergraduate Business and Economics programs, the Doctoral program and Executive Education programs. Uniform excellence across all of these programs is essential for the success and reputation of the Tepper School.

The primary goal of the Tepper School’s educational programs is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, tools and resources they need to become leaders in their chosen profession, and to develop in them a passion to make a positive impact on business and society. A Tepper School education prepares students to solve complex, unstructured problems, leverage technology and data to create value, work collaboratively in teams, and manage and lead with integrity. A Tepper School education is distinctive and carries with it an expectation of superior performance.
