A perspective on diversity weekend 2016, from class of 2019 MBA candidate Ben Strickhouser: I was lucky enough to be invited to attend Diversity Weekend because of my military service in the U.S. Navy. Diversity Weekend was my first visit to Tepper. At this point in my MBA search I had already visited all […]
For this post, I interviewed one of my friends, Surya Kapur who is also a first-year MBA. He is originally from India, and has been living in the U.S for the last few years. I wanted to know more about his experience at the B&T Trek in Seattle and I thought it would be a […]
As 2nd years, we sadly only have 3 more Mini’s remaining before graduation. In Business School, it’s easy to get caught up in your day-to-day; classes, clubs, social events, networking, recruiting….it never ends! However, one constant is the supportive Tepper community. Regardless of what you have going on, your classmates will always have your back. […]
“You’re crazy for doing that.” By now, I’m used to getting this response when I tell people that I’m a Part-Time On-Campus MBA student with a full-time job. I nod my head. Yes, I’m probably crazy. Yes, I constantly wonder, “Can I really pull this off for the next 32 months?” After completing one mini-semester […]
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 […]
Once again, we had all of BRGR to ourselves for Tepper’s Halloween Party! We had the dance floor and bar on the first floor and food on the second floor. The DJ was awesome and played GREAT music ranging from 90’s to present day hits all night long. The burgers were DELICIOUS! I decided not […]
Now that Mini 1 has come to an end, I thought I would take some time to reflect on Mini 1 as a first year vs. second year because my experiences were completely different. I’m not sure if Mini 1 last year was the toughest mini but it definitely falls in the Top 3. I […]
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 […]
Over the summer, I got the following LinkedIn message from an incoming student: If you know anything about me, I am about as far from “mathy analytical juggernaut” as you can get. I studied English, theater, and art in college; I haven’t taken a math class since high school and to this day I avoid […]
The silver lining of being a Partner to an MBA student manifests itself in the form of glossy boarding passes, gleaming hotel rooms and the non-stop use of the gloriously dependable Google Maps. I am, of course, talking about the many travel opportunities that MBA students get (and Partners can hop along on). There may […]
Every year during BaseCamp, the MBA orientation program, new students participate in an event called Community Day. Community Day is one of the community service events that Tepper Cares help to plan.
The Graduate Business Association (also known as the GBA) is our student government. We have over 40 different MBA clubs, including professional, affinity, and social clubs.
Behind every MBA student, is a person equal parts stressed, amused and hungover. Ok, I’m exaggerating: behind maybe half of the MBA students. (excerpt)
Hello! My name is Luísa Felix Souza and I am an international class of 2019 MBA candidate at the Tepper School. Prior to leaving Brazil, I was feeling a mix of sensations: excitement, happiness, and a little fear combined with an extreme anxiety of starting as soon as possible. After only one week of Basecamp, […]
