About The Tepper School

The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, consistently ranks among the top business schools in the world. The school’s legacy is closely tied to our pioneering work in introducing management science to the marketplace and B-school arena. More than 60 years ago, the school’s leadership brought forth their vision of a better way to succeed in business.

Management science – the academic alternative to the case study method – has its roots in analytical decision making in complex, dynamic business environments. Its prevalence and popularity has had sweeping effects – today, nearly all leading B-schools include some form of the Carnegie Mellon  management science model in their curriculum.

A commitment to knowledge discovery via interdisciplinary collaboration is at the heart of our academic philosophy. As a decidedly small school housed within a decidedly small research university, we are a conservatory of innovation. The linkages across campus are numerous and an inherent part of our culture. Partnerships that would be considered unconventional at other schools are what we do best. Tepper students partner with students, professors and researchers in other schools and centers, such as engineering, robotics, biotechnology and life sciences, product design and computer science.

Our degree programs include:

Areas of specialization for which recruiters and researchers recognize the Tepper School include: Finance, Financial Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Operations Management, Consulting & Strategy, Computational Marketing and Technology.

As one of the most technologically elite universities in the world, the dedication to cutting edge learning and application underlies everything that we do – with an approach to business management that allows our students to make a significant impact in business and in society.

In 2010, Pittsburgh was ranked a Top Ten “Smart City for New College Grads” by Bloomberg BusinessWeek as well as “America’s Most Livable City” by Forbes Magazine.
