The part-time hybrid online MBA at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business offers students the tools to not only make decisions based on data but the leadership skills to develop and implement strategy around those decisions.
“Our curriculum includes training in advanced analytics with courses like optimization and statistical decision making, as well as several electives that meet our analytical depth requirement to ensure students are prepared to transform data into useful information that drives decisions,” Cindy McCauley, Executive Director of Online Masters Programs at Tepper School of Business, says.
The Tepper School offers a Part-Time Accelerated MBA in the same online hybrid format. Applicants who have earned an undergraduate business degree or have taken core undergraduate business courses (accounting, finance, marketing, microeconomics, and operations,) within the last seven years can transfer credit and complete the program in 24 months. Part-Time Accelerated MBA applicants must also have 3-7 years of work experience.
The Part-Time Online Hybrid curriculum at Tepper is fully identical to the full-time MBA program. It’s designed to train students in analytics and leadership skills.
A typical Tepper Part-Time Online Hybrid student will start out in core courses of business fundamentals such as finance, marketing, and operations. Other core courses include optimization and statistical decision, coupled with managing teams and communication classes.
After the core courses, students customize their education with a concentration in business technology, marketing, finance, operations, organizational behavior and entrepreneurship with numerous elective options…
After the core courses, students customize their education with a concentration in business technology, marketing, finance, operations, organizational behavior and entrepreneurship with numerous elective options during the second half of the program.
Classes take place over a six-week “mini semester” with the entire Part-Time Online Hybrid program taking 32 months to complete.
OMBAs have access to various extracurricular activities such as student clubs, speaker events, and career treks to enrich their education. “The key for online students is being able to access to these events given their off-campus location,” McCauley says.

New Part-Time Accelerated MBA
The Tepper Part-Time Accelerated MBA is for business graduates or individuals with undergraduate business coursework experience who want to earn an MBA through a part-time online format in a two-year time frame.
The Part-Time Accelerated MBA may be for you if:
In the Tepper Part-Time Accelerated MBA program, you’ll get challenging and rewarding coursework taught by the professors who lead the Full-Time program. You’ll pursue an analytics-focused curriculum in a part-time online hybrid format, but in less time than the Tepper Part-Time Online Hybrid program.
Because students in the Part-Time Accelerated MBA program have earned an undergraduate business degree or have taken core business courses in the last seven years, they receive credit for their acquired business knowledge and take refresher coursework in their first semester.
