Wharton Alumni Yield (WAY) Program

What is the WAY 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.

How does WAY work?

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.

“I was glad to be able to reach back out and congratulate my assigned admit on her choice. This is a really well-run program, you make it easy for alums to be a part of it.”
