Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2010

Education is the foundation of a good society. It does not prepare you for job, it prepares you for life. in college you learn to think beyond your limited life experience. You meet people that are different than you, than your family and they hail from places that are geographically and culturally different than what you are use to. The significance of this not only to you but to society as whole is immeasurable. The world is avery large place, filled with a variety of people, languages, cultures, histories and knowledge. When you choose not to go to college, you choose to ignore these things and they are so worth knowing that it would be a detriment to you to not explore them.

The Heinz college does an excellent job of providing practical on-the-job training with a solid academic foundation. The professors are usually experts in their field, and many have decades of work experience from which to provide insight. The school also has numerous internship and externship resources.

Carnegie Mellon was filled with entitled undergraduate students who thought they coukd get away with a lot. This is what I noticed through grading and teaching there. It wasn't bad for graduate school as long as you can find friends outside of the school itself. Pittsburgh is a great city.

Overall the Tepper school of Business at Carnegie Mellon offers a high quality program. The school is data oriented which helps students better tackle the problems of today. Being able to find value in data, and use to better understand the world around us, gives one a strategic advantage.
