The school emphasizes a quantitative and analytical approach, which differentiates it from other management programs. It seeks candidates with strong math and quantitative backgrounds. The school also has an inter-disciplinary approach which allows a broad perspective for the study of business administration.
Studies are very diverse, and students may chose from about 20 different tracks in their degree. The academic year at Tepper is divided into four mini-semesters of 7.5 weeks each. Students who chose not to do a summer internship between the first and second year may take summer courses and complete their studies within 16 months.
