  • A Message From The Dean

    As a member of the Wharton community, you know that today’s economic systems are interconnected and the diffusion of good ideas is widespread and rapid. The international orientation of Wharton graduates is one of the reasons they are so valued. Through international research initiatives, unique student immersion opportunities, insightful programming for global business leaders and valuable alliances with overseas partners, Wharton has solidified its globally focused reputation.

It will house expanded development offerings from Wharton and Penn, alumni programming and career-management activities for the University’s 12 schools.

Jeffrey Bernstein, W’92, has been appointed managing director. This is an exciting development for Wharton and Penn, and we look forward to strengthening our presence in the powerhouse nation of China. About 300 Wharton students enroll each year in our Global Modular Courses. These intensive three- to seven-day workshops are held during school breaks in areas that are relevant to the subject matter. For instance, this year students studied global supply chain management in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hong Kong, while others studied conflict, leadership and change in Kigali, Rwanda. Global Forums are Lifelong Learning events hosted in international centers of economic and political importance. Started in 1993, they provide Wharton alumni and friends with opportunities to learn from and interact with the best minds in business. Our next Global Forum will be in […]
