Wharton Admissions Yield Program

The Wharton Admissions Yield Program (WAY) is 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.

Alumni Recruitment Network

The Alumni Recruitment Network (ARN) is a program that enables Wharton Alumni to host events for prospective students and allows them to learn more about the Wharton community through firsthand experiences from alumni in an intimate setting that fosters a personal connection at the beginning of their MBA application journey.

As an ARN host, the event format and location is at your discretion. We hope to give prospective students a diverse set of venues to ask questions and learn more about Wharton’s talented network of alumni. Applicants consistently rate their interactions with Wharton alumni as a key reason for applying to the program and ultimately deciding to enroll at the Wharton School.
