The Wharton Advantage

Wharton Is Business and More

Wharton’s undergraduate program is widely recognized by both the academic and corporate worlds as the leader in business education. Our curriculum, however, doesn’t just provide you with the best business education, it also gives you access to the tremendous liberal arts and sciences course offered at the University of Pennsylvania. With over 25 percent of the degree requirements taken outside of business, Wharton truly is business and more.

Business in the Ivy League

The combination of Wharton and Penn is unbeatable. Nowhere else can you find this caliber of business and liberal arts and sciences education.

While business theories and principles are grounded in economics, receiving a degree from Wharton is not the same as going through a liberal arts curriculum in economics. There are significant and meaningful differences in the curriculum, methods of learning and instruction, and knowledge gained. We encourage you to get a better understanding of what it means to study business in the Ivy League.

If business is just one of your intellectual interests, you’ll find that Penn is a great place to be—with four undergraduate schools and 12 graduate schools your academic options are unlimited. You can study abroad, pursue minors, or get a dual degree with any of Penn’s other undergraduate schools. Or, if you’re interested in taking more advanced courses, you can take classes in some of Penn’s graduate schools.

Unlimited Opportunities

You can go anywhere and do anything with a Wharton undergraduate degree. Everything that you learn at Wharton is applicable to any career that you enter—whether it’s immediately after graduation, or 10 years down the road. Our alumni are working in areas such as real estate, fashion, entrepreneurship, law, finance, education, government, entertainment, and medicine. If you’re interested in pursuing graduate study, Wharton will give you an excellent preparation. Over 60 percent of our alumni ultimately go on to pursue master’s and doctoral degrees in areas such as business, social work, medicine, law, economics, education, and government.
