Thank you for your inputs :) It definitely helped me out. Are you aware of any other resources from where I could gather the numbers? Ross has the emails of the students currently pursuing their MBA and they gave me a really clear picture. Similarly, I would love to connect with the students in Tepper too. Do you know how I could do that?


Yeah, definitely. If you email the admissions office, I'm sure they would be happy to put you in touch with a current student. I also know that there are some current students that use this forum, though many of them have probably stopped checking since the application period is mostly over for the year.

Congratulations to every one on their admits! and best wishes to those waiting on theirs. :)

I am planning on applying for B-Schools next year and Tepper is obviously there in my shortlist. I just have a couple of questions regarding the college graduates and recruitment and I'm not sure where to raise them. If you could help out would it be awesome!

-Which companies recruit in Tepper for Technology Consulting positions and what are the salaries they offer?
-How flexible is the recruiters outlook? Can I shift from Technology consulting to roles in MC, Marketing Management, Business Strategy Consulting based on courses I take or clubs I participate in (As i do not have prior expertise in such domains) ?
-Do the recruiters eye the graduates as future leaders? Do any companies hire candidates for leadership roles or for their in house leadership training program etc ?

Thanks in advance :)



I'll take a stab at this, though I'm not a current student so I'm probably not the best person to answer your questions.

- Here is a list of companies that recruit at Tepper: http://tepper.cmu.edu/recruiters-and-co ... g-partners . I can't speak to the salaries, but my guess would be somewhere around $120k (the mean for Tepper is $110k. Add $10k because it is consulting. You could expect a bit more if you did MC). My understanding of the big consulting companies like Deloitte is that you apply to work for the general company and get assigned to a focus area only after being hired. I'm sure there are exceptions to this though.
- Very flexible. The MBA can be used to switch careers, so you will have a lot of options available to you. The key is to land an internship in the area that you hope to work. Membership in certain clubs can definitely help you land those internships.
- I think you are absolutely expected to be a future leader of the company (that's a big reason for getting your MBA) and you could expect to land an in house leadership training program role if you wanted one (though I usually think of these as programs for undergrads instead of grad students. However, I'm sure they exist for both).

Hope this helped at least a little bit. Good luck next year!

I think what helped me the most was Linkedin. I connected with almost 6 current students through linkedin and they were very helpful to answer queries regarding life at Tepper , pre MBA and post MBA and the interaction is still continuing. In fact, the current student group is also helping each other in every doubt or every query posted by any of us.

The most striking part is Tepper community and it is more than helpful and inviting provided you have done your homework before approaching them.

All the best.

There are no calls. Thankfully !!

You will get mails with a welcome video for the admit and that is fabulous :-D

Post that you will get next steps and you can access your decision letter. The scholarship will be mentioned in the letter.

I must say adcom has a knack to pick up very well rounded and helpful individuals and once you join the group after the admit, you will realize that. The second years are god send. They will help you in each and every step. So just get passed the hurdle and experience the "Tepper Community".

Still kept on the waitlist. At this point can they really not just accept me or deny me? Limbo sucks.
