 Program Overview   study in america

The Tepper School of Business offers one of the world's highest-rated graduate business degrees. The hallmark of a Tepper MBA is an analytical approach to global business management coupled with a breadth of study and related practical experience that prepares graduates to make a significant, immediate impact in the workplace.
   The Tepper MBA emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to business management. Through coursework, dynamic academic exercises and a range of other learning opportunities, Tepper MBA students actively experience the challenge of participating in day-to-day business operations as they are trained to deal effectively with a range of challenging business issues.
   The program is organized into popular mini-semesters that enable the school's students to experience a broad range of courses. Tepper graduates will complete at least 32 courses—approximately one-half of which are electives— that may be tailored to each student's personal or professional interests and goals.

Unparalleled Depth
Tepper School of Business offers depth tracks as part of the full-time MBA program. This course of study combines a general management education with rigorous, focused study in General Management, Biotechnology, Technology Leadership, Analytical Marketing Strategy, Entrepreneurship in Organizations, Management of Innovation and Product Development, Global Enterprise Management, Investment Management and Financial Engineering.
   Depth track programs are conducted jointly with other departments, research centers and schools on campus. They prepare students for leadership in specific industries by exposing them to leading academic thinkers, innovative research and top students from across the university. As a result, students benefit from a true cross-campus educational experience that has no departmental boundaries.
   In addition to the MBA program, the Tepper School of Business offers master's degrees in computational finance and quantitative economics. Students also may pursue dual or joint degree programs in combination with other schools and local universities, including programs in law and engineering.

ROI–Return on Innovation
The Tepper School of Business' philosophy embraces a rigorous, cross-campus academic experience that provides students with a grounding in business management fundamentals and access to the innovative, world-class research and expertise available throughout the university. In year one, students are exposed to the fundamental base of management skills that serves as an important driver throughout the first decade of their careers. Economics, organizational behavior and analytical courses form the intellectual foundation of developing an exceptional business skill set. The core begins with a solid foundation in the three fundamental scientific disciplines - economics, behavioral sciences and quantitative methods.
    In Year Two, the coursework provides exposure to depth and breadth associated with various industries and functions. The ultimate demonstration of students' intellectual transformation is the confidence with which Tepper MBAs are able to configure and re-test approaches to virtually any problem within any industry. The strong Year One base of training is the key to this adept understanding of those engines that influence business results. The focus is on relevant, not simply popular, management education and training mirrors the Tepper School's legacy and enduring academic philosophy.
    This depth and variety help to fulfill the university's objective of providing an elite business education to extraordinary students, equipping them to confront change, foster innovation and lead in the transformation of thought into meaningful action that brings results. Students leave Tepper ready to succeed and to act as catalysts of business success.
