Our students are well-prepared for the complexities of a global marketplace. By emphasizing skills that are adept at managing different backgrounds, beliefs and talents, we produce generations of graduates sought after for their ability to both lead and collaborate.
We realize that a diverse student population is key to advancing our academic mission. We seek a community conspicuous for diversity of backgrounds, opinions, experience and beliefs. We believe every student has an important role to contribute to his or her time here, and we are a place that seeks out differences and aims to understand how individual and collective distinctiveness strengthens our community and our reputation.
We partner with a number of diversity pipeline organizations that work alongside the Tepper School team and our students in meeting the needs of an ever-changing society where our graduates will make an impact.
U.S. Underrepresented Students
We are proud of our commitment to working with underrepresented MBA candidates and providing outstanding support that leads to admission into our program. The Tepper School of Business is a member of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, an alliance of 17 graduate business schools and corporate partners dedicated to providing management education opportunities to African American, Hispanic and Native American students and ultimately their entry into managerial positions in business.
We believe that leaders come from diverse backgrounds and bring with them perspectives that have been shaped by their own unique personal and professional experiences. LGBT students who identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender bring with them a valuable point of view to contribute to the community. Out&Allied provides a supportive environment to enhance the social, academic and career experiences of current and prospective lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students, allies and partners at the Tepper School.
Experience in the military is highly valued at the Tepper School. We appreciate the leadership and team skills of military MBA candidates, as well as the diversity of experiences that this particular community of students brings to the classroom and to the overall student experience. The Tepper School is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program under the new GI Bill, which assists in meeting the cost difference above the amount provided by the new GI Bill.
Attracting and advancing women is a priority at the Tepper School. No two women arrive here via the same route. Beyond the curriculum, the highly active student organizations here create many social and professional opportunities. Among our more than 30 student-run organizations is an active Tepper Women in Business club that promotes networking opportunities among students, alumni, faculty, industry professionals and the National Association of Women MBA’s network.
