Tepper has pioneered a new way of studying business, favoring the "management science" method over the traditional case-study method. This approach emphasises the use of data and statistics in decision-making. Today, some form of its original academic model is taught at every leading business school.
Graduates launch more than 30 startups annually, and the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship closely partners with MBAs on business plans, VC funding and commercialisation.

In 2018 the school opened the David A. Tepper Quadrangle, a $201 million, 315,000 square-foot building, that largest on the university's campus, that houses the Tepper School and is a hub for collaboration, innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship.
After nine years as Tepper's Dean, Robert Dammon announced he would be stepping down after the 2019-20 academic year and return to a faculty position.
