Our Mission

Get Connected. Stay Connected. Keep Your Edge.

The Wharton Club of Philadelphia serves one of the largest regional groups of Wharton graduates in the country. While we have Wharton and Philadelphia in common, we have much diversity in terms of our experience, industry and interests. Our members include people at the beginning of their career, those looking to change professional directions, and established industry leaders. The club offers a variety of programs and services to meet this wide range of interests. 

The Club offers opportunities for you to get connected and keep your edge. 

  • Career enrichment: The Club offers an ongoing series of speakers and seminars to help you be successful in your current position and grow prospects for new positions, whether they are in your current company or a totally new venture. 
  • Business outreach: Through alliances and partnerships, the Club has strong links with the Philadelphia business community. We are continually exploring ways to lend our voice to the discussions around business leadership in our region. 
  • Connection to Wharton: We enjoy unique access to Wharton given our Philadelphia location. Through our proximity to Wharton, we have access to the latest thinking and resources available through the school. The Club offers numerous ways to give back to the Wharton community through participating in student business plan reviews, Management 100, and on-campus panel discussions. 
  • Social activities: The Club is filled with successful people from a variety of positions and backgrounds. We offer a stimulating environment to meet new people, rekindle old connections, and expand your network.
