Last weekend was the Diversity Weekend at Tepper. My favorite event! Exactly a year earlier, I was an attendee still not sure whether an MBA was right for me. A Tepper student guided me through school during the Friday social event; Dean Dammon presented during the dinner on Saturday; and Leanne Meyer and Jarred Lazear provided […]
Let’s face it – a full time MBA at Tepper is a lot of work! Balancing classes, homework, recruiting work, networking events and case competitions takes a toll on you. However, Tepper also knows how to take care of you! The Graduate Business Association – Tepper’s administrative student body – recently hosted an entire week […]

One of the Tepper Ph.D. students’ more recent traditions: Hallo-Wine! Combining Halloween hijinx with wine tasting. Tons of fun and some great costumes this year too!
As the winter begins to brew, many students across campus are beginning to get sick. The cold weather isn’t the reason though! Although many people think the cold is the prime influence, the cold just allows germs to thrive and replicate in that environment. That is why it is very important to bundle up, get vaccinated, and eat right.
It’s crazy how fast time flies by, and especially how it flies by while campus gets preoccupied by classes, extracurriculars, and socializing. It’s already been a week since Pittsburgh was struck by the tragic act of hate claiming 11 beautiful lives. While the many in the community are still taking things in, it was really […]
It’s not a secret. Pittsburgh is an incredible food town. Crowned Zagat’s top food of 2015, I was excited to see what Pittsburgh had to offer. It did not disappoint.
It was a regular Saturday morning in Pittsburgh. Students were making their way across each of the city’s campuses, laughing and talking with their friends, planning what they would be wearing for the Halloween parties coming up.
In the first few months of their college experience, college freshmen experience a lot of change and freedom. For example, they live with friends, do everything by themselves, and escape their helicopter parents that are worried at home.
When people told me that I would be busy during my MBA, my general response was, “Yeah, sure.” I mean, how bad could it be? I’ve been working for seven years on community outreach projects at an oil and gas services company in Houston. Many of my projects required me to be at events during […]
First and second-year Tepper students recently attended the Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) conference in Minneapolis. One student reflects on the power of LGBT spaces in MBA programs. On October 11, 2018, the LGBT community will mark the 30th anniversary of National Coming Out Day. While there have been some significant improvements in how LGBT people […]
“You sure you won’t mind kids making fun of your lunch?” my mom asks my sister when she asks if she can pack supper leftovers for her school lunch. “Mom, I’m Asian,” my 13-year-old sister cooly responds. When my mother told me this story over a video call, I laughed. My sister is easily the […]
Back when I was a freshman, I would walk by the TOC and see everyone dressed professionally. I remember feeling terrible and asking myself, “Why aren’t you dressed up today? I went earlier this week and I went once last week but am I trying hard enough?”
2018 INFORMS Award & Honorable Mention were recently given to two of our Tepper PhD students!

Operations Management PhD student Neda Mirzaeian received […]
