This review is for: Tepper
Program:

Full Time MBA

Class of:

2017

Experience during the program

Tepper moves at an extremely fast pace and is very quantitative at the outset. I've heard from multiple alumni that we learn things that other MBA programs usually don't get exposed to.

For that reason, our alumni are highly sought after in a wide variety of industries. Despite being ranked between the 10 and 20 spot in multiple rankings, Tepper sends an extremely high percentage of the student body to top tier companies like Amazon and PwC. Many of the students land in MBB consulting companies as well. Tepper definitely commands MUCH more respect with recruiters than their ranking suggests.

The good:
-students/people
-faculty
-range of classes available
-recruiting
-clubs
-international travel opportunities

The bad:
-facilities are old, but that will change once the new building is finished in 2017
-the student body is small (a good thing) which makes the alumni body smaller than other schools
-I think everyone thinks this about their school, but I feel that Tepper is a much better school than the rankings indicate...

Experience during the program

So far I love my experience at Tepper, and yes! It is way much better than I expected.
Community. My classmates are very diverse, smart, supportive, and easy to hang out. I am confident to say that it is because of the small size of our class that there are not “groups” and you feel free to talk and hang out with everyone.
Program. Once you start the program you realize it is very very rigorous; however if you are organized and conscious about the things you can or cannot do, you will be fine. So far I love all the courses that I have taken. We are one of the few schools that offer Optimization, which is a very interesting and useful course that will allow you to outstand once you start looking for a job.
Every Friday we have the B**rs event. I like it very much since you have the chance to meet other students, even from other programs.
City. Pittsburgh is an under-rated city! It is beautiful, safe, and cheap. Most of students live in Shadyside, a neighborhood that is pretty close to Tepper, supermarkets, and bars (yes, we have a lot of fun too!).
I would suggest future applicants to contact current students and if possible, visit the school! When I was looking for a school, I did not care that much about the ranking but about how the school was going to help me to be a better professional. Ask students how they have improved during the last year, what new skills they have acquired, and what others they have enhanced.

Experience during the program

1) Tepper community - Very helpful and everyone knows each other by name. The 2nd years are very helpful and goes an extra mile to help the 1st years.
2) Closely knit community - Tepper goes a great deal to preserve that and that is the strength of Tepper
3) Award wining Career Services : The career service councillors are very helpful and prepares students for the corporate world. They bring their experience into play and help the students to a great deal
4) Professional Clubs : The professional clubs do the heavy lifting to train the students for the corporate recruitment and for the interaction with alums. They bring in alums from specific industries to make sure the learning is 360 degrees.
