Curriculum Structure


Your Wharton MBA begins with Pre-Term. With a three-week immersion, Pre-Term sets you up for a strong academic experience and ensures that everyone in your diverse incoming class begins from a common knowledge base. Pre-Term also provides the platform upon which you will develop your curriculum plan while bonding with new classmates and building your own sense of community and school pride. 

Pre-Term is required. It includes coursework, a Learning Team experience, and the chance to explore Philadelphia and build relationships with your cluster and other classmates.

You will be introduced to your Learning Team at a Learning Team Retreat in an environment free of distraction. This initiates the process of strong team formation. The Teams complete the Management 610: Foundations of Teamwork and Leadership course, and continue the collaboration throughout the fixed core.
