Due to a large volume of interview requests, admissions interviews are granted at the discretion of the admissions committee after an initial review of your application. You will receive additional information about the interview process at the time of invitation. Interview invites can be sent at any point in the application process, up until the date in which decisions are released.
If you have questions about the admissions process, you can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone during our regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., EST, at +1 412.268.5687. Remember, you can check the status of your application at any time using our online application system.
Once you have completed your online application, if you have any supporting documents they should be sent to the following address:
MBA Admissions Office
Tepper School of Business, Rm. 231
Carnegie Mellon University
5000 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3890
Do NOT send the following:
The Tepper Business School at Carnegie Mellon is a member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), an alliance of leading American business schools and some of our country's top corporations. The mission of the CGSM is to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping to reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans in both the member schools' enrollments and the ranks of management.
Candidates who apply through the CGSM and are admitted to Carnegie Mellon are eligible to compete for a full-tuition fellowship.
If you have submitted an application for the Tepper MBA program within the last year, you need to follow a specific process to submit a new application. Email email@example.com to notify us that you wish to reapply to the Tepper MBA program. Include "MBA Reapplication” in the subject line of your email.
Transcripts: Admitted candidates will be required to submit an official transcript from each college or university attended, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, whether or not the candidate has earned a degree. Transcripts must be submitted in sealed envelopes signed by the appropriate university official. Transcripts may also be sent directly from your university to the Tepper Masters Admissions Office. The official grading scale of the academic institution must also be submitted. Transcripts from institutions at which you studied abroad do not need to be sent separately provided that the study abroad courses and grades are reflected on your undergraduate transcript. Note: All international transcripts must be submitted with all components listed in the World Education Service (WES) Required Documents standards. Admitted candidates are NOT required to submit any documents or utilize WES translation services, but rather, use their standards as a guideline to assure all required transcript components are submitted.
International Student Forms: If you are not a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S., you must submit the Graduate Student Financial Statement and supporting documents which are available to download from our website. Although financial documents are not required to render an admissions decision, they are necessary for immigration purposes should you be offered admission.
Credential Verification: We are committed to ensuring the integrity of our admissions process and the reputation of our educational programs. We also want to protect and enhance the value of the degrees that we confer on our students. To guard against any allegations that candidates may have misrepresented themselves in their admissions applications, we have established an independent verification of application credentials for all of our master’s students. We believe that this verification process will support our efforts to ensure integrity throughout the program. Candidates will receive more information on this process upon admission.
