Admissions Criteria

Wharton Executive Education carefully monitors the balance of industries, regions, functions, and companies in each program session. By doing so, we lay the foundation for a strong peer-learning environment. Applications are subject to acceptance by Wharton Executive Education.

The University of Pennsylvania values diversity and seeks talented students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds. The University does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or status as a disabled or Vietnam-era veteran in the administration of its educational policies, programs, or activities, admissions policies and procedures, scholarship and loan programs, employment, recreational, athletic, or other University-administered programs.

Questions or concerns regarding the University’s equal opportunity and affirmative action programs and activities or accommodations for people with disabilities should be directed to:

Payment

Payment is due upon acceptance into the program. We accept wire transfers, checks made payable to the “Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania,” and credit cards. To pay by VISA, MasterCard, or American Express, please contact the Payment Processing Center at +1.215.898.5737. Prices are subject to change without notice. You can expect to receive specific information and materials regarding preparation and logistics approximately three weeks before the program start date if your full tuition payment has been received.

For applicants to the Advanced Management Program only:
The Advanced Management Program (AMP) fee includes private accommodations, most meals, and all program materials. If you are accepted into AMP, we will issue your company an invoice. Payment in full — by check, wire transfer, or credit card — must be received at least 60 days before the program start date. A full refund will be issued if cancellation in writing is received 90 days prior to the start of the program. Otherwise, the $15,000 cancellation fee will apply.

For applicants to the Advanced Finance Program and General Management Program only:
The fee for the Advanced Finance Program (AFP) or the General Management Program (GMP) includes tuition for six open-enrollment programs (up to 30 program days in total), executive coaching, private accommodations, most meals, and all program materials.

  • If you are accepted into AFP or GMP, we will issue you an invoice. Payment is due upon acceptance. Payment in full — by check, wire transfer, or credit card — must be received before the first program start date.
  • If you wish to cancel enrollment in one of your selected courses, we are more than happy to reschedule your attendance for the next program date, or we can work with you to identify a more convenient session. If you wish to withdraw entirely from GMP, please contact Wharton Client Relations at +1.215.898.1776 or execed@wharton.upenn.edu to discuss your specific situation.
  • Please note these transfer and cancellation policies: We will allow participants to transfer between different dates of a specific program with at least 10 days’ notice before the start date.
  • Cancellations received more than 90 days prior to the start of the first program in your learning journey will receive a full refund. Cancellations received less than 90 days prior to the first program’s start date will incur a charge of $15,000. Please note that after you have taken your first program in AFP or GMP, no refunds will be given.
  • Requests to cancel or defer participation must be made in writing and submitted to Wharton Client Relations at execed@wharton.upenn.edu.


Cancellation of Registration

Cancellations must be received in writing. Cancellations received more than 30 days prior to a program’s start date will incur a charge of 10 percent of the full tuition; cancellations received 30 to 14 days prior to a program’s start date will be charged 50 percent of the full tuition of the program. Cancellations received less than 14 days prior to a program’s start date will be charged 100 percent of the full tuition. If a registrant fails to attend without notification, or if a withdrawal occurs on or after a program start date, full tuition will be forfeited.

If Wharton cancels a program due to low enrollment, registered participants will receive a refund of any tuition paid, or be allowed to move their registration to a future running of the program. Refunds from cancelled programs can also be applied to other open-enrollment programs.

Please note that in all situations, participants are responsible for their travel and Wharton cannot reimburse for any travel expenses that may have been incurred.

Refunds and Transfers of Registrations

Participants who need to transfer to another Wharton Executive Education program can do so within one year of the start date of the original program. Transfer requests received 30 to 14 days prior to a program’s start date will be charged 20 percent of the full tuition of the program. Transfer requests received less than 14 days prior to a program’s start date will be charged 30 percent of the full tuition. The remaining balance can be applied to another Wharton Executive Education program or refunded within one year of the original program date.

Please note that 100 percent of the full tuition will be forfeited if one of the following occurs:

  • The registrant does not enroll in another program within one year of the original start date.
  • The registrant has not requested a refund within one year of the original start date.
  • The registrant transfers more than two times.
