Tepper releases new Class Profile info

PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, the nation’s No. 3 business school according to the 2006 Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive poll of corporate recruiters, enrolled 137 new full-time MBA students this fall with an average Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score of 696 out of a possible 800. The score reflects the fifth consecutive year of increasing test scores for the Tepper School’s incoming class. (Click here for chart.)

Overall, 28 percent of Tepper students are international, with students from 25 countries in this year’s class compared to 21 last year. Women represent about one-fifth of Tepper’s entering class and underrepresented minorities (African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans) continued at about 10 percent.

About 92 percent of incoming students held full-time jobs before entering the MBA program, and the average number of years on the job held steady at just more than four years. Included among the incoming students are a neurosurgery resident, a member of the Peace Corps who worked in Cameroon, a patent examiner and a member of the U.S. Coast Guard.

"Tepper’s focus on the intersection of technology and business teaches future leaders of any background the analytical skills for solving complex problems in an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment. That experience develops the confidence to make an immediate and strategic impact on their organizations," said John Mather, executive director of the Tepper School’s master’s programs.

This year also saw a large increase in enrollment in Tepper’s FlexTime program, offered to Pittsburgh-area students who want to earn their MBA while continuing to work. The FlexTime program has 68 new students this year compared to 55 last year — a 24 percent increase. In addition, 61 new students enrolled in Tepper’s corporate-sponsored FlexMode program, in which professors teach students at companies throughout the country via live video conferencing. Students receive the same MBA curriculum from the same instructors in each of the three methods of delivering the program (full-time, FlexTime and FlexMode).

Tepper’s innovative Master of Science in Computational Finance (MSCF) program — taught both at the Tepper School in Pittsburgh and in New York — welcomed 83 new students for 2006. The interdisciplinary MSCF degree is a 17-month program that draws its course content from four Carnegie Mellon colleges: the Mellon College of Science (math), the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (statistics), the H. John Heinz III School of Public Policy and Management (information technology), and the Tepper School (finance). Tepper also enrolled 20 new Ph.D. candidates, representing 10 countries. Of the new doctoral candidates, eight (40 percent) are women.

Enrollment in the Tepper School’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program numbers 82, representing eight different countries, with an average SAT score of 1360. About 43 percent are women.

Tepper is one of 27 U.S. schools to maintain membership in the Forte Foundation, which aims to increase the number of women in business by encouraging their admission into graduate business programs. It is also one of 13 U.S. schools that belong to the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a 40-year-old organization that promotes diversity and inclusion in American business.

Another good source of MBA information is The MBA Tour which is touring Canada for the first time October 30th to November 2nd.


Toronto – In 2005 alone, over 6,300 Canadians took the GMAT, the Graduate Management Admissions Test, a prerequisite for most MBA programs. Canada is third globally following the United States with 135,626 and India with 7,206 GMAT takers.

Canada is drawing attention from countries like England, Spain, China and the United States as they view the Canadian market one with untapped potential. The MBA Tour announced its expansion into Canada and its plans for three free-admission conferences in Vancouver on October 30, Toronto November 1 and Montréal on November 2.

“Canada has a reputation for quality education, young intelligent professionals who are interested in excelling in their careers and businesses that are well respected internationally,” said Peter von Loesecke, Managing Director, The MBA Tour, citing the reason for the expansion. “Business schools around the world are responding to that. They are asking us to help put them in front of the next generation of Canadian business leaders,” he said.

Canadians are seen as unique students because they often speak more than one language, are educated in a respected academic system and are comfortable living in a multicultural environment. Attending the Canadian conferences are 34 schools from nine countries. This is the most diverse interest shown by countries from around the world in a conference put on by The MBA Tour. International school representatives identify Canada’s multiculturalism and the open attitude of Canadian students to travel abroad as the reason.

“Top students from around the world come to Cornell to earn their MBA and each year we attract a strong group of Canadian applicants from nearly every province,” said Richard Sawyer, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid for Cornell University’s MBA program at Johnson School. “Our affiliation with The MBA Tour further solidifies our exposure to the best and brightest Canadian students.”

The MBA Tour conferences in Canada are preceded by The MBA Tour Decision Week, October 24-28. The awareness building initiative campaign is aimed at helping prospective MBA students consider the key issues that impact their decisions to apply to MBA programs. Prospective MBA students will be able to discuss their questions and decisions at an event locally: Vancouver October 30th 5:00 pm at the Marriott Vancouver Pinnacle Downtown; Toronto November 1st 5:00 pm the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and in Montréal November 2nd, 5:00 pm at the Centre Mont-Royal. Admission is free.

The MBA Tour is unique in that it offers plenty of opportunities to network with alumni, business school admission representatives, and naturally, other like minded education enthusiasts. Top business schools attending the conference include Cornell, UCLA, Berkeley, ESADE, and INSEAD.

Established in 1993, The MBA Tour is committed to ethical international recruitment that emphasizes the personal interaction between the business schools and prospective students.

It is worth checking out

To the managment team of THE MBA Tour. That wasn't cool to post this advertisement comment like that. Please discuss highlights of your events with me directly in the future. I will not tolerate SPAM advertising like this again. If this was not by THE MBA Tour, then readers of this Blog, please don't do this again. - Dave
