Business School Overview
The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University offers graduate programs in these departments and concentrations: accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, international business, marketing, management information systems, production/operations management, organizational behavior, and quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research. Its tuition is full-time: $55,800 per year; part-time: $1,815 per credit; and executive: $80,000 total program. At graduation, 75.7 percent of graduates of the full-time program are employed.
The Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business pioneered the mini-semester system, which is essentially four quarters of 7.5-week classes. M.B.A. students can elect to study the General Management curriculum or follow one of seven specialized M.B.A. tracks, such as Financial Engineering and Technology Leadership. The school also offers a part-time M.B.A. program, a distance learning M.B.A., an executive M.B.A. program, and Ph.D. degrees.
Through electives, students in the General Management curriculum can complete concentrations like accounting and communications. Students can earn a joint M.B.A./J.D. through the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Students can also complete joint degrees in computational finance, software engineering, healthcare policy and management, public policy and management, and civil and environmental engineering.
Students can gain an international experience during Global Treks, which are customized, two-week trips, or the Transitional Economies study abroad program, which lasts two mini-semesters. Close to three-quarters of students live in Pittsburgh’s Shadyside neighborhood, a mile from the Carnegie Mellon campus.
Notable alumni of the Tepper School of Business include David Coulter, former chairman and CEO of Bank of America Corp., and Dina Dublon, former executive vice president and chief financial officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co.
