CMU Tepper Launches New Part-Time Accelerated MBA Program

The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon is adding a new two-year, part-time MBA program to its portfolio of degrees offered.  The Part-Time Accelerated MBA was created for people who already have an undergrad business degree or related coursework under their belt and want to accelerate their MBA process.

Admitted students can pursue an analytics-focused curriculum in an expedited part-time online format, CMU Tepper explained in a media release. Qualified individuals with an undergraduate business degree or who have taken specific foundational business courses in the last seven years may transfer credits into the program. They will take refresher coursework in their first semester of the Part-Time Accelerated MBA program, the school noted.

Students have the option to convert to a full-time, in-person experience during their second year of coursework.

“In just two years, the Tepper School’s Accelerated MBA program will prepare students to manage people, build networks of influence, and inspire others to solve the world’s most complex problems,” said Kelly Wilson, executive director of masters admissions. “We’re excited to offer this new option to advance the careers of next-generation business leaders in a quick and efficient format.”

Delivered through a combination of online and optional on-campus classes, the school notes that the Part-Time Accelerated MBA program offers the same MBA degree and is taught by the same professors who lead the full-time program. Students of the two-year part-time program also will be able to build global networks and beneficial community connections as Tepper School alumni.

“As we continue to work toward a more intelligent future, flexible and accessible options are a priority for us at the Tepper School,” said Isabelle Bajeux-Besnainou, dean of the Tepper School of Business. “This new program provides a fast-track Tepper School MBA degree to propel graduates into the next levels of their careers.”

The new Tepper School Part-Time Accelerated MBA program is now accepting applications for fall 2022.
