Small & Strong!

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

This review is for Tepper

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

When I was evaluating schools, I was looking for a school that had the following characteristics.

1. Small Class Size.
2. Strong Knit Community.
3. Good focus on technology and finance

I expected Tepper to fulfil my expectations but it went above and beyond them. At ~200, Tepper has one of the smallest class sizes in the top 20 MBA schools in US. My classmates were some of the most accomplished and humble people I have ever met in my life and had the chance to work with. In addition to the same, they are always ready to help a fellow classmate in a professional or personal setting.

Academically, Tepper is one of the most rigorous MBA programs. Tepper follows the mini model so every 6 weeks we are studying new courses and learning different things. This makes the learning cycles very small and intense.

You will find that Tepper’s recruitment is heavily dominated by the Technology & Consulting industries. Small class size means that we generally have few companies hiring double digits from a single class joining them in a single year. Despite this, Tepper regularly sends its students to all top destinations for MBAS as interns and new graduates in a regular manner. Tepper's long list of faculty who earned Nobel prizes for their contributions in Finance, with the most recent in 2013 reflect the quality of professors at its disposal. As someone walking into the Business school with zero Finance background, I am very confident that I can handle any financial issues that will invariably cross my path in the future.

In short, an average Tepper student has all the following qualities
1. Humble
2. Really Smart
3. Excels in teams.

So, if you feel that you will excel in this environment, I look forward to seeing your as future members of the Tepper Community!! Welcome!
