Coming out as an LGBT MBA

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 […]

Analytics only get you so far

I’m going to say something a little controversial: Tepper’s analytics didn’t come in handy this summer. I benefited most from my one-on-one coaching with Accelerate, network of peers, and Managing People & Teams course.

Christmas Party

What happens when the people who love to cook food (re: Culinary Club) get together with the people who love to eat food (re: Partners Club)? A Christmas Party, of course! We’re still confused whether the theme was “ugly sweaters” or “all you can eat” because there was plenty of both going around. People donned […]

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.
