Alumni on Campus
Connect with Wharton alumni on campus in San Francisco and in Philadelphia. Wharton students interact with industry leaders through an alumni mentoring program, career panels, alumni club receptions, and conferences. Alumni give lectures and hold discussions in the classroom, work with students on field application projects, and meet with students through campus programs.
Wherever you end up, a Wharton Alumni Club gives you a lifelong network of leaders in specific industries or geographic regions, like the Wharton Club of Northern California and the Wharton Club of Southern California.
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.
Wharton MBA Reunions
Reconnect with classmates, rekindle memories, and relive the energy of taking classes with professors who inspire you and make you see the world differently. Combine enrichment with entertainment for the whole family in one amazing weekend.
As a Wharton alum, you’ll have access to Lifelong Learning with extraordinary resources — online, on campus, and in regions worldwide.
Wharton Lifelong Learning also teamed up with Penn Wharton Entrepreneurship to introduce the Wharton Scale School Workshop Series at Wharton San Francisco for entrepreneurs looking to move beyond initial product-market fit to build a larger and more profitable enterprise.
