Business School Overview
The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University offers these departments and concentrations: accounting, economics, entrepreneurship, ethics, finance, marketing, management information systems, production/operations management, organizational behavior, and quantitative analysis/statistics and operations research. Its tuition is full-time: $56,768 per year and part-time: $1,845 per credit. At graduation, 79.4 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 6.5-week classes. MBA students can elect to study the General Management curriculum or follow one of four specialized MBA tracks, such as Business Analytics and Technology Leadership. The school also offers a part-time MBA program, a distance learning MBA, an executive MBA 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 MBA/J.D. through the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Students can also complete joint degrees in computational finance, software engineering, health care 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.
