About the school

Founded in 1949, the Tepper School of Business is one of the most innovative business schools on a global level. The college focuses on research and training in organisational behaviour, finance, accounting, entrepreneurship, economics, marketing, business ethics, operations, management, and operations research. The Tepper School of Business consistently develops new models to perceive business difficulties from a different angle. The college introduced management science, recognised as decision-making backed up with analytics. This approach was the first to incorporate scientific methods into problem-solving for high complexities. Today, the college boasts that other top business schools are utilising some variation of the Carnegie Mellon academic model to train their students.
