Life at Tepper

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.


At the Tepper School, I feel like I am part of one big family. My classmates are by my side through everything,
teaching me new things all the time. I am grateful to be part of such an inclusive and accepting group of people
who have become my second family. I take pride in being a member of the Tepper community.
