A common transition for our Wharton alums is to move from finance to tech. The Wharton Club of NY is delighted to bring you a panel of your Wharton peers to share their insights on the pros and cons of a career in tech.

You’ll learn about their individual career moves and how they thought through this transition. The panelists will also share how best to transition to and successfully navigate a career in tech.

During this session, the panelists will:
  • Debunk myths about a career in tech
  • Share practical tips for transitioning to tech
  • Offer guidance on how to navigate a career in tech
Please submit your question ahead of time so we can focus the session on addressing what’s on your mind. You can do so using this link.

  • Caroline Merin, COO at Rappi (Mexico City)
