International Community

No matter where your career takes you, an MBA from the Tepper School will help you find future opportunities, identify career paths and create connections across the globe.

World-class business education is the bridge to solving cultural business challenges in global communities. At the Tepper School, you’ll collaborate across cultures by working in teams with students from countries all over the world (over 28 countries through our three program formats, to be exact). We provide support to international students through language assistance, a diverse collection of student clubs, an inclusive and tight-knit culture and recruitment opportunities at top global companies. These resources, when combined with cutting-edge technology and research, now make it easier than ever to overcome geography.

Viv's Perspective

"As a business school student, communicating with people who have different ways of thinking is critical. The Tepper School Class of 2018 includes students from 28 different countries. This allows us to have the opportunity to share and learn from each other’s cultures and backgrounds. I am proud to be part of the Tepper School community because it actively includes everyone from around the world."

Held each spring, International Festival is one of the Tepper School’s most well attended events. The festival features performances by Tepper School community members from around the world in the form of dance, music and more, as well as a global culinary journey where current students showcase their culinary talents and culture.
