Tepper has strong information systems and operations management programs; both specialties earned No. 2 spots in their respective categories in the 2008 U.S. News & World Report rankings. The school is also well respected in finance and supply chain management, among other areas. Graduates are heavily recruited by East Coast companies, but the school's name opens doors nationally.
Tepper doesn't have any on-campus housing, so students take apartments around Pittsburgh, particularly in the Shadyside and Squirrel Hill neighborhoods. The school hosts a slew of organized social and networking events, and students can always check out the cultural and entertainment options in downtown Pittsburgh.
