About The Joseph Wharton
Awards Dinner

The Wharton Club of New York's Joseph Wharton Awards Dinner has long been considered the premiere business school alumni event in New York City. The dinner was revived last year at the Rainbow Room where over 350 alumni attended a sold out event and helped recognize four exceptional leaders from within the Wharton community.

The 2007 Joseph Wharton Awards Dinner will continue to build on last year's success, and strengthen the notion that the Wharton Alumni Association is one of the most exclusive and powerful communities in the world.The Joseph Wharton Awards recognizes exceptional leaders within the alumni community.
