Is it hard to get into Tepper School of Business?

A: The CMU Tepper School of Business is a research-driven school. Many of the faculty in the MSBA program – including myself – have computer science degrees and perform our own research in this area. We publish papers in the top journals and we go to top conferences in AI, machine learning and optimization. We bring those insights and cutting edge technologies into business applications – which you can’t find with a data science degree alone.

The Tepper School of Business, founded in 1949, pioneered the discipline of management science, challenging the academic orthodoxy of the time, which championed the case study method as the primary way to solve business problems. Other educational institutions eventually followed suit, and now most leading business schools teach some form of Carnegie Mellon’s model of decision-making powered by analytics. With the rise of big data in the 21st century, the Tepper School’s approach of developing analytical methods for solving business problems has become even more important, as it continues to make an impact in industry, government and education around the globe.
