Wharton Alums Needed for MBA Recruiting Events

University Relations Committee
Recruiting Events

Fellow Wharton Alums,

The Wharton MBA Admissions office needs your help! Competition among top MBA programs to attract the best candidates has become fierce as the candidate pool has shrunk substantially over the past year. 2004 admits cited their interaction with alumni as a key driver in their final decision to matriculate at Wharton.

Today, you can make a difference by joining the MBA Admissions recruiting events here in Manhattan. All you need to do is show up, mingle with prospective students, and answer any questions they have about your experience at Wharton and the value it adds to your career and life. Please note that for the Diversity presentation, we especially need a strong showing of female and minority alumni.

Below is a list of NYC events that are currently posted. Please RSVP here so we can gauge how many alums will be showing up at each event. Check back this web page often to see updates, as more event dates will be added:

September 29
New York Reception 7 - 9 pm
11 Madison Avenue
Between 24th and 25th

October 11
NY Diversity Reception 6:30 -8:30pm

You can also send e-cards to invite prospective candidates to attend one of our more than 70 recruiting sessions worldwide.
Electronic versions of the invitation are also available on our website at: www.wharton.upenn.edu. You can help promote the events even if you can’t attend in person!

Wharton was one of the best experiences of my life, and the network and alumni events continue to enrich me. If you share this affection for Wharton, please help us maintain the quality and diversity of the Wharton experience by helping to shape its student body – and future alumni network! I hope to see you at the upcoming Wharton MBA Admissions events.
