About the Tepper School of Business

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.

The Tepper School’s influence has spread in part due to the achievements of its faculty and former students. Nine Nobel laureates are part of the business school’s legacy (formerly named the Graduate School of Industrial Administration). With its exceptional academics and one of the nation’s most innovative entrepreneurship centers, which has generated in excess of 250 new companies and 9,000 jobs, the Tepper School will be shaping the future for years to come.
