Web site: www.tepper.cmu.edu
Time to find elements: 2 minutes, 4 seconds
The Upside: On Tepper's Web site, all of the elements fell into place: a clear and thoughtful layout; the intelligent—but judicious—use of Flash-based slide shows; and complete, informative content. It's very easy to navigate your way to Tepper's site from Carnegie Mellon's main page, and from there, to move around the site gathering what you need. One can, if necessary, pluck a couple of crucial points—a deadline, perhaps, or the word count for an admissions essay—and leave the site without a single grunt of frustration or unnecessary click.
The Downside: There's very little to complain about on Tepper's site, but their description of the full-time, flex-time, and "flexmode" MBA programs could be clearer.
