EXPLORE WHARTON DIVERSITY DAY
If you are interested in the Wharton MBA communities for under-represented students, we invite you to visit us at our annual prospective student event Explore Wharton: Diversity in Action.

Co-sponsored by the African American MBA Association (AAMBAA) and the Wharton Hispanic American MBA Association (WHAMBAA) and Wharton’s MBA Admissions Office, Explore Wharton gives you the opportunity to experience Wharton first-hand.

This two-day event focuses on Wharton MBA opportunities for prospective under-represented people of color. You will meet current students and administrators, attend classes with Wharton’s top professors and gain invaluable insights in the admissions process.

Discover how our distinctively collaborative environment, innovative learning channels, global reach, and diversity of talent, place you at the leading edge of new ideas that shape worldwide practice in the business, nonprofit and government sectors.
