Think an online MBA can’t help you develop a better network? A quick look at the Silicon Valley Access Weekend.

Opportunities to network abound at the Part-time Online Hybrid MBA Access Weekends.   Six times a year all of the Part-time Online Hybrid (PTOH) MBA students, together with various faculty and administration, gather together somewhere in the continental United States to have face-to-face classes, take exams, and meet with leaders from some of the country’s […]

A break spent abroad

Juggling different schedules is a difficult aspect of any part time MBA student’s life; at Tepper we’re given a very generous winter break.  I decided to take advantage of this break from classes and cash in some vacation time to spend time with my family in South Korea.  Although I only got to spend two […]

How do you procrastinate better? Do your Tepper MBA from China.

You wake up to a beautiful Sunday morning and reach for your phone to check your messages from last night’s shenanigans. Suddenly, you’re gripped by a familiar, almost nostalgic, terror: the terror of realizing that you have again waited till the last minute to do your homework for your Tepper Part-Time Online Hybrid MBA.   […]

Seattle Meet and Greet

Many of us are home for the holidays, which means time with family and a chance to meet prospective students! This year I had the opportunity to host the Seattle meet and greet with a colleague from Tepper. We enjoyed some bubble tea while chatting with two prospective students applying from Seattle. It’s always nice […]

Sugar, spice and everything nice

The Partners Club brought holiday festivities a little earlier to Tepper this year with a gingerbread house making activity to Friday b**rs at the school. Some houses demonstrated a deep understanding of structural engineering, while others were created with more contemporary construction in mind, including an “open concept” living space and modern garden hedges. While […]

With data mining, statistical analysis, and data presentation among LinkedIn’s list of top skills for graduates in 2017, the Tepper Business and Technology (B&T) club partnered with Tableau to provide students with an overview […]

Bring out your inner Picasso! Well, we tried…

The Partners Club and Part-Time GBA had a ball of a time at Painting With a Twist in East Liberty last night. We painted “Light Up Night Pittsburgh” with the beautiful downtown skyline set against a background of fireworks. While there were serious moments of concentration when we were trying to draw outlines of buildings, […]

Soak it up like a teabag!

First year MBA students are like teabags. Wait, wait, hear me out on this one. Just the way a teabag is suddenly plunged into a cup of hot water, first year MBA students plunge head first into the grad school life. If you’re a tea drinker, and you prefer a strong cup like me every […]

Touring the Burgh in Style!

Partners Club celebrated the end of Mini 1 by taking boys, babes and babies on Pittsburgh’s land and water tour. The tour takes place aboard a cute ducky boat/bus that can travel not only on the road, but also in the river. The tour was followed by a happy (and hearty) hour downtown and students […]

…we made it to the end of Mini 1! And we are so happy about it 😊

Last week was really busy! Although a lot was going on (as at the same time we were dealing with case competitions, recruiting preparation, homework, and finals) it was super cool to spend time with my classmates and study with them. Now we are finally done, and we did it all together. I wouldn’t be […]
