It all started with a question we asked on Facebook about the transformative effect of the Wharton experience. We received an outpouring of responses, which led to the Spring 2015 cover article. Which has led us to continue to ask alumni:
How have you felt the Wharton Effect?
“After being at Wharton and gaining the confidence and the courage to succeed, as well as fail, I plunged into entrepreneurship, and it’s certainly been an interesting, rewarding yet challenging road.”
—CAREN SINCLAIR-KAY WG95, TECHNOLOGY ENTREPRENEUR, EXECUTIVE AND ADVISOR
“When I entered Wharton back in 1993 … I was thinking big relative to what I thought was big. But after … I really started to believe anything was possible and that I could change the world.”
—ROD ROBINSON WG95, FOUNDER & CEO, CONNXUS INC.
“Without Wharton, I would have stayed in Paris, worked in economics in some office, and not had the rich international life that I have had.”
—CATHERINE GROSSMAN WG80, CREDIT EXECUTIVE, J.P. MORGAN
“It’s all because of this constant, strong curiosity about what’s coming to him as opportunities as the world evolves … the ability for him to capture these new trends and be able to relate what he can do and actually go into those in real action was very inspiring.”
—JULIO LEUNG WG70, BOARD MEMBER, VCI GROUP
