Carnegie Mellon Tepper MBA Launches Deferred Enrollment

The Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University announced a deferred enrollment program, called Tepper Future Business Leaders. This opens up MBA admissions to college seniors who plan to graduate from a U.S. college or university in the current academic year who do not yet have full-time work experience.

Tepper will be looking for candidates with a strong academic record, professional internships, and undergraduate leadership experience. Accepted applicants can then defer admission for two to four years during which time they join the workforce.

“The pandemic has disrupted so much for so many, and the Tepper Future Business Leaders deferred admission program allows students to take back some control of their lives,” said Isabelle Bajeux-Besnainou, Dean of the Tepper School, in the press release. “With their deferred acceptance, they will be able to enter the workforce with confidence and certainty knowing that a top-ranked MBA program is waiting for them to launch their career to even greater heights.”

To apply to Tepper Future Business Leaders, eligible applicants need to complete the online application form. Applicants should submit copies of their undergraduate transcripts. Applicants should also prepare a resume and secure one professional recommendation. Two essays and a $125 application fee are also required. Carnegie Mellon undergraduates do not have to submit a GMAT or GRE score, but applicants from all other institutions do. Tepper offers interviews by invitation only. Applications must be submitted by April 1, 2021.
