I have about 4 years of experience working in management consulting. During this time, I have worked mostly with clients from the public and social sectors. I choose Tepper due to its reputation in data analytics and their Accelerate Leadership Program. I like to run and play tennis. In the months leading up to my MBA, I am working on a start-up along with my job - worst timing ever.
Why did you pick Tepper?
1. Strong analytics program
2. Accelerate Leadership Program
3. Small class size
4. A relatively more structured curriculum
Best part of program? There is this interesting mix of "an easy going attitude" and "intensity" among the current students that I really like. But I will update this when I land in Pittsburgh. Also, mini-semesters.
What should more applicants know about Tepper? Everything I know about Tepper is available publically, so if I can get it right, anyone can.
