Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College has a large student community that reaches all over the world. Our students are the best representatives of the impact Heinz College can have on someone’s life.

Student Ambassadors

Meet our Heinz College Ambassadors, who are available to answer your questions surrounding the student experience, their program, career services, campus life, life in Pittsburgh, and more. Ambassadors are here to offer advice and support as you navigate the graduate school search. 

Please be mindful that student ambassadors volunteer their time and may take up to 48 hours to respond, especially around project deadlines, exams, and weekends.

Current Student "Office Hours"

We invite you to join a current Heinz College student for casual conversation focused around the Heinz student experience, life in Pittsburgh, Career Services, classroom activities, and more!

  • Join The Conversation!

    It's hard to get a sense of the Heinz College community when you can't travel to Pittsburgh. That's why we are bringing the Heinz College community to you!

    We invite you to sign up for one or more upcoming Current Student "Office Hours." Our current students will be hosting Zoom rooms, where you can come and go as you please, based on your availability. Our students will be available for the full advertised hour and we encourage you to come with prepared questions.

    Please Note: This session is designed to answer questions on the Heinz student experience – program specific (curriculum/admissions requirements), finance related, and personal questions will not be answered. For questions related to the curriculum, admission process, or financing your degree please check out our upcoming webinars!
