Military and Veterans
Experience in the military is highly valued at the Tepper School of Business. You'll discover that you're part of a squad, not a battalion.
We appreciate the leadership and team skills, as well as the diversity of experiences that this particular community of students brings to the classroom and to the overall student experience.
We believe that our innovative leadership program and our analytical approach to decision-making is a powerful asset when paired with military students’ proven leadership and teamwork skills. We have found that military students who are Tepper School MBA graduates make a strong transition into the civilian workforce based in part upon the structure and caliber of our program.
Camaraderie is evident here; teamwork is part of our DNA, with team projects, team presentations and capstone courses integrated into all aspects of the coursework.
Year one is focused on mastery of fundamental management principles. Year two emphasizes flexibility that is customized to your needs with a selection of more than 120 electives offered at the business school as well as selecting electives across disciplines throughout Carnegie Mellon University. Popular choices include foreign language, public policy and computer science courses. We also offer Dual and Joint Degrees.

From professional to cultural, there is a Tepper Club and Organization for almost every interest, with new clubs forming each year. Additionally, our Graduate Business Association offers leadership opportunities and a way for students to contribute immediately to the success of the school through unprecedented access to school leaders.
The Military Veterans Association (MVA) seeks to help veterans and members of all military organizations in their transition to the civilian sector. Its objectives are to work with the Admissions staff to inform and assist qualified candidates from all armed forces in the application process; to provide a social support community at Carnegie Mellon; to strengthen the skills, knowledge, and networks essential to a successful transition into the business world through events with corporations and alumni; and to continue the traditions of leadership, honor, respect and duty by serving as role models within the community.
The MVA is open to the Carnegie Mellon Community, in particular to veterans and current members of the U.S and foreign militaries, their families and any other students interested in learning more about the experiences, qualities and characteristics of veterans.
