The Wharton Alumni Networking Breakfast is the Wharton Club of Philadelphia's business networking and leads generation group.

The group usually meets the second Tuesday of each month over breakfast and and frequently conducts joint meetings with other alumni clubs and networking organizations in the region to further expand our networks.  The Wharton Alumni Networking Breakfast provides Club members with a means of establishing helpful business connections and relationships and learning more about each other’s work and businesses.  This in turn helps members explore and determine ways in which they can be of assistance to each other, in terms of business leads, introductions, and referrals.  We also occasionally have guest speakers or invite Club members to provide more in-depth presentations on their businesses or a particular topic of interest to the attendees.  With the exception of our occasional “bring a friend” meetings, in order to participate in this group and attend its meetings and events, you must be a Wharton School alumnus and a member of the Wharton Club of Philadelphia.
The Wharton Alumni Networking Breakfast participants must be Wharton alumni who are current members of the Philadelphia Wharton Alumni Club.

Cost: $15.00 per person for Wharton Club Members and their guests.  You must register to attend!
