Wharton International Program (WIP) is a short-term international business course that gives undergraduate students an amazing global opportunity featuring business site visits, faculty lectures at our partner schools, cultural excursions, and networking opportunities with undergraduate students and business contacts from the destination countries. In addition to learning about another country’s business environment and culture, students earn 0.5 course units that can be used towards business-breadth or elective credits. Three WIP courses are offered each year including a social impact themed course, a retail themed one and a general business theme. Past trip sites include Australia, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, China, and Italy.
