In early August, Wharton officials announced that the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales would be the latest affiliate location of Knowledge@Wharton. The new site, to be called Knowledge@Australian School of Business, will feature business news, business research and analysis geared specifically toward Australia and Asia.
Meanwhile, in July, Knowledge@Wharton and the Wall Street Journal announced a partnership to create a new news site dedicated specifically to information about rural India. The site (http://online.wsj.com/public/page/rural-india.html) features India-focused reporting, analysis, interviews, commentary and video from the Journal, Knowledge@Wharton, MarketWatch.com, Barrons.com and AllThingsD.com. News Corp., owner of the Journal, has invested heavily in the Asia-Pacific marketplace and Wharton has also been increasingly focused on the region. India Knowledge@Wharton was launched in 2006 and subscriptions to the site in 2009 are growing faster today than at any time since the site’s launch.
Knowledge@Wharton now boasts a global audience of 1.3 million subscribers and publishes in five languages. An Arabic edition is currently in the works. —C.Q.
