Stay in Touch with MBA Admissions
99,000 Alumni. One Wharton. Alumni are an invaluable resource to help Wharton find the most talented candidates for future MBA classes. Volunteer opportunities abound through the entire admissions cycle, from recruitment to matriculation.
Wharton Admissions Yield (WAY) Program
The power of the Wharton brand is rooted in the connections we make. That’s why we created WAY, a program that connects Wharton MBA graduates with newly admitted MBA students, to answer the incoming students’ questions about Wharton and encourage them to accept Wharton’s offer of admission.
Twice a year, immediately following the release of MBA application decisions in December and March/April, you will be “matched” with an admitted MBA student, and we will ask you to connect via phone, in-person or email. The meeting format/frequency is at your discretion, but it gives the admitted students a chance to get answers to their questions and learn more about Wharton’s talented network of alumni.
What’s Happening at Wharton MBA Admissions
Welcome Weekend Goes Virtual with Wharton HQ
When it was no longer possible for admitted students to travel to campus, the Wharton MBA Admissions office and the Wharton Marketing Technology team built a virtual community through Facebook Workplace. Read the Wharton HQ case study to learn how it happened!
New Volunteer Opportunity for Alumni
The Wharton Alumni Welcome Program was created in Fall 2020 to build connections between alumni and current MBA students in this new world of remote learning. The program was covered in an article by The Daily Pennsylvanian as well as in the Wharton Story, “Community Away From Campus”.
