Alumni and Network
Wharton has a global alumni network with 96,000 graduates in 140 countries.
Wharton has one of the largest alumni networks of any business school. Alumni are constantly coming to campus to talk to current students about their experiences and to provide advice. This gives students the ability to build professional networks before graduation!
Lifelong Connections Begin Here
No matter what you do with your future, you’ll have lifelong connections and friendships with the business leaders of today and tomorrow. On top of that, you’re part of Penn’s alumni network, with 304,000+ graduates around the world.
Wherever you end up, a Wharton Alumni Club gives you a lifelong network of leaders in specific industries or geographic regions. Seventy-nine regional and affinity Wharton Alumni Clubs provide support and opportunities for Wharton graduates worldwide. Meet fellow Wharton alumni, trade ideas, find employees and jobs, develop new initiatives, form partnerships, and discuss economics.
This program introduces Wharton students to the alumni community on a more personal level. Wharton graduates lead sessions on aspects of business not typically covered in the classroom — such as “Managing Your Career Like a Brand,” “Being a Young Woman in Business Today,” “How to Use Your Wharton Degree to Save the World,” “Starting Your Own Company: When is the Right Time,” and “Becoming a CEO Before You’re 40.”
As a Wharton alum, you’ll have access to Lifelong Learning with extraordinary resources — online, on campus, and in regions worldwide.
Connect with one of the strongest global business communities, Wharton alumni, through the school’s online alumni community.
In any career you pick, your Wharton education prepares you to explore and create solutions to today’s most significant business and social issues, and our graduates go on to do more than they ever imagined. Our alumni graduate with such a versatile degree that they are involved in almost every industry, on almost every continent. Some start their own businesses; others transform huge companies or work to improve the world in the nonprofit sector.
