Tepper Veterans Club

Kyle's Perspective

"The community at the Tepper School is one of the best aspects of the school. The tight-knit student population supports each other in the career search and through academics, club activities and social events. As a veteran, I have found my classmates to not only value my experiences, but also actively pursue lessons from me on leadership and the role of the military and government in society and business."


Military MBA

The Tepper School of Business is a proud member of Military MBA. Military MBA is an education network for military officers and non-commissioned officers who are interested in obtaining and applying their MBA graduate degrees for career advancement.

A website can only communicate so much information, and we have been in your shoes. We can supply you with valuable insight and information as you explore business school and follow opportunities."
