Springtime is an exciting time of year: birds are singing, flowers are blooming, (snow is occasionally falling, to general disappointment), and admitted MBAs are arriving on campus to get to know Tepper better before they start in August. Their two-day immersive experience is run by the Admissions team and a seven-member student committee and staffed by current students, faculty, and administration to make it an exciting introduction to MBA life.
An hour’s drive outside of Pittsburgh lies Ohiopyle State Park, which offers a fantastic collection of hiking trails, white water rafting and fishing. Since the weather was simply amazing this past weekend, a few of us seized the opportunity to go hiking. We started off by scaling the first leg of the Baughman trail, stopping […]
Every MBA student must complete a capstone project as part of their graduation requirement. I chose to study abroad for my capstone in Hong Kong and hopefully, I will get to update you on all the fun stuff I will be doing for my 4 weeks in Hong Kong and China! It’s been 2 weeks […]
While some lucky folks (read: smart planners) were frolicking in the sun and sands of Southern U.S. or Mexico, my husband and I decided to road trip around east coast this spring break, and while sudden and extreme bouts of winter made our journey quite difficult, we still somehow managed to make the most of […]
Between crystal toilets and many many sushis, sakes, and matchas we discovered one of the most amazing cultures that I have ever experienced. During the spring break, I went to Japan with a group of 41 people, my husband included. We were guided by an awesome group of classmates, including 5 who are Japanese […]
While my classmates are trekking across the global for spring break, I was moving out of my beloved apartment in Bakery Square. It was a bitter sweet moment even though I only lived in Bakery Living Blue for 8 months. I have had so many great memories in that building from team meetings and group […]
What happens when the Partners Club, the Wine Club and the Data Analytics Club walk into a bar (or a co-working space in this situation)? A Winter Olympics themed Red & White (and Blue) Party of course! With food and wine from around the world, super cool (pun intended) costumes, and real medals for all, […]
Many of us that enter MBA programs dream of someday being in the boardroom for a company– someday far, far off. But what if I told you the boardroom was a lot closer than you thought?
Transition One – It is time the time of the year where Tepper clubs transition between the old board and the new board. As of last Monday, I officially relinquished my position as the VP of the Part-Time Graduate Business Association. It was an extremely humbling year of serving the part-time community. I could not […]
Today I spent the day on campus listening to my classmates talk about their leadership journey after being invited by a classmate to hear their story. These presentations are part of an optional Leadership Certification process through the Accelerate Leadership Center. We get so caught up in the day-to-day at Tepper that we sometimes forget […]
For the latest Student Spotlight, I chatted with First Year Full Time MBA students and happily married couple, Alex and Gabe Gerson! I hope you enjoy getting to know the Gersons! Me: Thanks Alex and Gabe for being here for our latest Student Spotlight! Can you please start by telling us about yourselves? Alex: Sure! […]
You’ve seen this word floating around on the internet. Think about it; on blogs, on Instagram feeds, probably even in cat videos. It’s casually thrown in Snapchat stories by millennials who’ve just discovered the use of the crockpot, or by that friend who’s changed their family vehicle from a sedan to an SUV to accommodate […]
The decision to pursue your MBA probably came after weighing a plethora of difficult choices. You might be moving to a new city or country, you must have calculated the opportunity cost of lost wages when resigning from your job, and you may have said teary good byes to friends and family back home. Unfortunately, […]
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 […]
The fantastic thing about the New Year is that it brings with it a clean slate – a reboot button. You could be gorging on meat pies and apple crumbles on Dec 31st guilt free because you know you’ll be hitting the gym come Jan 1st. Or you could be enjoying that last splurge at […]
