You would be hard-pressed to find someone whose summer is looking anything remotely like how they had anticipated. And I’m certainly no exception. I hoped to end my last summer in college with a bang and maybe get my foot in the door for the workforce. But that didn’t quite pan out. Last summer, I […]
As we wrap up the semester, I want to take a moment to reflect on the past few months.
My name is Sonali Gupta and I am a rising senior in the undergraduate business program at Carnegie Mellon. I’m majoring in Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Business Technology and I’m minoring in Global Systems and Management.
When I first heard the news that CMU was transitioning to online classes to prevent the spread of coronavirus, I wasn’t sure what to think. On the one hand, I was surprised and impressed by CMU’s ability to quickly adapt to a novel situation. Transforming every college class into its online counterpart is a monumental […]
Last weekend was the Diversity Weekend at Tepper. My favorite event! Exactly a year earlier, I was an attendee still not sure whether an MBA was right for me. A Tepper student guided me through school during the Friday social event; Dean Dammon presented during the dinner on Saturday; and Leanne Meyer and Jarred Lazear provided […]
It’s crazy how fast time flies by, and especially how it flies by while campus gets preoccupied by classes, extracurriculars, and socializing. It’s already been a week since Pittsburgh was struck by the tragic act of hate claiming 11 beautiful lives. While the many in the community are still taking things in, it was really […]
When you think of October, perhaps you think about the arrival of fall, the superfluity of pumpkin flavored foods, or the thrill of Halloween. There’s more to October than that, though; it also happens to be LGBT History Month, and, on October 11, National Coming Out day. These more serious topics are celebrated by Tepper MBAs in a yearly event called Coming Out Stories.
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.
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! […]
Giving Tuesday is a huge day for many organizations including Tepper. While organizations make a big push for donations on this day, this was an important day for the Class of 2018 Gift Campaign. Our goal is to be the first class to ever reach 100% participation. When we launched our campaign last month, we […]
