Opportunities for Alumni
Wharton’s annual Global Forums and active network of alumni clubs create unparalleled opportunities for the 91,000 members of the Wharton community to meet and exchange ideas with Wharton faculty, alumni, and other leaders in business and government in 150 countries around the world.
Regional and affinity clubs are founded, developed, and organized by alumni around the globe. They are independent, volunteer-driven, and self-sustaining networking organizations that interact and engage with the Wharton School to help make real the collective vision of offering top-quality programming, communications, and engagement among the student, faculty, and staff communities and the broader global alumni communities.
Held each year in centers of international economic importance, the Wharton Global Forums offer alumni a chance to engage with leaders in the business community. These events host a number of keynotes and panel discussions with Wharton’s outstanding faculty members, Wharton alumni, and industry leaders about today’s most relevant topics in business.
For the past few years, approximately one-quarter of the graduating MBA classes have found full-time employment in international locations. We offer employers the opportunity to connect with students and alumni on a personalized, effective level through on-campus recruiting options, off-campus resources, and customized service from their industry contacts.
