On November 20th, 2017, the Accelerate Leadership Center and Tepper Women in Business (TWIB) jointly presented a community conversation about Gender in the Workplace, focused around the controversial internal Google opinion memo written in July 2017.
I remember calling home 8 years ago when I first came to the U.S. on Thanksgiving, and telling my parents that I thought it was one of the most meaningful American holidays. The tradition comes with the stereotypical 4pm dinners with members of the extended family, some poor turkey that has been in preparation for […]
On Wednesday, November 15th, over 125 students packed Mellon Auditorium for an interactive, hands-on Tableau workshop led by representatives from Tableau. 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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
Yesterday was a big day for the Tepper community! Businessweek’s 2017 MBA rankings came out with good news for us. As the Marketing Officer for the Full-Time program, I actually heard the news a couple of hours before it was released to everyone else so I could help push the news when Dean Dammon made […]
From the performances, fashion show, food, and dance party, this year’s Diwali Party, hosted by SABA, was a blast and reminiscent of an Indian wedding. Just see for yourself in these pictures! If you end up going to Tepper, you become one big family so you will more than likely be invited to attend one […]
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. Each month, we will be talking to a featured club and posting about it here on the blog. This month, we are featuring the South Asian Business Association (commonly […]
We are one week into Mini 2 and I wanted to offer some insights into what to expect this mini as a 1st year. We like to tell everyone that Mini 2 is the craziest mini yet because on campus recruiting (OCR) begins and it’s a whole different adjustment after surviving Mini 1. Personally, Mini […]
What do the words “business school” make you think of? If you’re in the throes of application, it may be “GMAT,” “letter of recommendation,” or “interviews.” Once you’ve started your MBA journey, though, you find a different set of words: “homework,” “bar night,” “treks,” “career fair,” and the famous “case competition.” Four members of Out&Allied combined career fair and case competition by competing in the Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA) Liberty Mutual case competition in early October.
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 […]
