Wharton Programs for Working Professionals (WPWP)Wharton Programs for Working Professionals (WPWP) offers professionals four areas of post-baccalaureate study at one of the world’s leading business schools:
Our students come from a diverse range of companies and industries — from major corporations to government and non-profit organizations to entrepreneurial ventures. Most WPWP students represent organizations that are based in the greater Philadelphia region and outside the U.S.
Many WPWP students with undergraduate and/or graduate degrees in science, engineering, medicine, or the liberal arts are seeking a foundation in business to support their current managerial responsibilities and long-term career aspirations.
Other students who already hold undergraduate business degrees or MBAs take advantage of WPWP courses and programs to expand and update their business knowledge. Emphasis is on applying the concepts learned in the classroom to on-the-job managerial decision making.
Faculty members are appointed by Wharton departments for their subject area expertise. Their goal is to maximize the learning for students and to encourage the networking opportunities that can arise among a select, highly motivated group of professionals.
