Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper School of Business Online MBA Program Structure

The Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business Online MBA is a 32-month part-time hybrid program modeled for self-paced learning. Students in the program attend six “Access Weekends” per year, which are held at the university’s multiple U.S. locations. The weekends not only provide personal opportunities to connect with classmates, business professionals, and Carnegie alumni, but function as a bridge between semesters, introducing students to upcoming coursework.

The program allows students to uniquely mold their career paths in consulting/strategy, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, operations, or technology.

The program also features a weekly 70-minute online course that allows students to virtually interact in real time. Students in the program will have access to material 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The program officially begins in September.


The 32-month part-time program begins with Basecamp Orientation, followed by the first two “mini” semesters and a “Leadership Experience Week” in between. Beginning during the second mini semester, students undertake leadership and communication coaching, which continues to the culmination of the program.

The second academic year begins with the Global Economics course, leadership workshops, and full-time employment recruitment, as well as the first available elective coursework. The third and final year of the program features a Capstone project and corporate networking opportunities, as well as the final aforementioned electives, leadership coaching, and employment recruitment.
