Life at Tepper

Ask a current MBA student what sets the Tepper School student experience apart from the rest, and they will answer you with one simple word: community.

The connections you’ll make at the Tepper School will be unlike anything you’ve experienced. You’re not just one person in an oversized incoming class. You’re an integral part of a tight-knit, inclusive community. Because we are small but mighty, opportunities for involvement are wide-ranging.

From student clubs and case competitions to international treks and local brewpub tours, you’ll be amazed at how much you can do in two short years.
