Interdisciplinary Programs

Wharton is an incubator for innovation, with many dual and interdisciplinary programs.


Several specialized graduate and undergraduate joint- and dual-degree programs, within Penn and with other globally recognized schools, combine business education with specialized depth of knowledge in another area of interest. Students from these programs often bring special insight to both fields of study, which have wide-ranging career impact.

Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate interdisciplinary study is integral to the Wharton and Penn experience — every Wharton student follows an innovative curriculum that integrates a full business curriculum with liberal arts, teaching real-world skills in leadership, innovative thinking, and problem solving. Students can also extend this experience through the following interdisciplinary programs from Wharton and Penn’s other schools.

Explore coordinated and dual degree programs such as the Huntsman Program in International Studies & Business (BS Econ./BA in International Relations), Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology (BS Econ./Bachelor of Applied Science or BS Econ./BS in Engineering) and the Roy and Diana Vagelos Program in Life Sciences and Management (BS Econ./ BA in Life Sciences).
