You’re not just learning theoretical concepts that are dry and sterile and have no meaning in your life. The curriculum is very well-constructed—everything is relevant and everything is very actionable.
Redesigned and fully launched in 2012, Wharton’s curriculum has a unique structure, offering rigor and flexibility with foundation of broad management skills in the core and an unmatched array of electives and majors to help you develop one or more areas of expertise.
Wharton’s new core curriculum combines increased rigor with flexibility so you can customize learning by selecting a course pathway through content areas based on your educational and career experience and goals. Offered as quarter- or semester-long courses, the core curriculum covers traditional management disciplines with an emphasis on analytical rigor — accounting, finance, marketing, management, operations, statistics, and microeconomics — as well as the leadership, ethics, and communication skills necessary for leadership.Wharton’s core includes 9 credit units, distributed in two parts:
- Fixed Core: 3.5 credit units fixed with your cohort.
- Flexible Core: 5.5 credit units you choose to walk your own path.
Wharton’s elective curriculum provides depth and breadth across traditional and nontraditional areas of management education.
