Wharton Alumni Networking Career Management Online Meeting!

Members ONLY   

Fee: Free - You must register and be a Wharton Club Member!

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

The group usually meets in person the second Tuesday of each month over breakfast and frequently conducts joint meetings with other alumni clubs and networking organizations in the region to further expand our networks. Due to the COVID-19 issues, this meeting is moved online and we will strive to provide the same value to our members in these meetings as the in-person meetings. 

The Wharton Alumni Networking meeting 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.

Here is how you can attend:

The Wharton Alumni Networking Online participants must be Wharton alumni who are members of the Wharton Alumni Club have registered by 5/10/20.
