MBA was never for me, throughout my career I was highly encourage to go for MBA as stepping stone for career progression. It just never appealed to me, I explored Master’s in other areas such as engineering management and Operations management.

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year here at Carnegie Mellon; it is truly one of the times that exemplifies our motto, my heart is in the work. Final exams are coming up, final projects are due, and the stress that you’re not doing enough with your life sets in. But, I would argue it is […]

I almost can’t believe that nine months ago, I almost didn’t apply to this position because I […]
Very few people in this world are lucky enough to have someone who not only helps them develop on an academic level but on a personal level as well. For me in the Tepper School of Business, one of those people is Dr. Bevins. I had her for Business Communications and Business Presentations. On the […]
My gap semester has finally come to an end. Although there have certainly been times where I was glad to have avoided Zoom University, I am beyond glad to be back in Pittsburgh.
