The best thing about Tepper has been the close network that we have with our alums. Over the past year I have had direct access to high level individuals through our Alumni Board of Directors. I also benefited in my summer internship at J&J by having strong network of alums who are already reaching out to me from my future employer PWC. Lastly, I had the direct opportunity to interview David Tepper!
I loved the entrepreneurial program at Tepper. It covered aspects from venture capital to the early stage startup. There was constant interaction with professors who had venture capital experience, professors and alumni who had successful startups, and other classmates with similar entrepreneurial interests.
The close community and camaraderie. We have about 210 students in our class and I know all of them. We help each other instead of competing..
There is no "one" best thing. It's a combination that includes the size of the classroom, the analytical rigor of the curriculum, the co-opetition of class and support of the faculty and staff. All of these help you arrive at an inflection point - a self realization of what you not only want to do but must do!
Tepper has an excellent student body. People respect each other and help each other in all aspects. It really helps everyone build a strong network during the two-year MBA journey.
The worst thing that many people would note about the Tepper MBA program is its distance to other major cities to recruit. I actually did not find this to be a major problem though. You can find relatively cheap flights to major cities through the U.S.
Compared to some of my MBA friends at other schools, Tepper is not a 'party school." I did not have a problem with this, though I could imagine some would.
Certain recruiters are hesitant to come to campus due to the small class size--more work, fewer recruits.
Best thing: Flexibility of the curriculum to shape your own MBA program. In the general management track, after the core curriculum, the number of electives available and the ability to get the classes of your choice truly allow the student to shape their own degree per their career goals.
The small class size allowed you to become friends with everyone and learn from their experiences.
