At Wharton, we're committed to you as an individual. Our large community includes students of many backgrounds, including married students, parents, international students, women, and members of traditionally underrepresented populations. The exchange of ideas among students and faculty from different backgrounds and perspectives creates a powerful environment for learning and leadership development. At Wharton, diversity is not defined by geography, gender or professional background, but in the ways in which life experiences have shaped the members of our class.
Whatever your background or lifestyle, you'll find the support you need at Wharton and at Penn. Cultural and affinity organizations like the African American MBA Association, Greater China Club, and Out4Biz (the gay and lesbian student association) nurture an appreciation for diverse cultures while providing a community for students who share similar backgrounds and interests.
Explore Wharton is a very special two-day event in Philadelphia at the Wharton School. This two-day event focuses on Wharton MBA opportunities for prospective women, LGBT, and under-represented racial/ethnic groups.
