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 breadth and depth of the alumni community was once again on display this past year at The Pierre, where a sold-out event helped recognize four exceptional leaders from within the Wharton community: Jon M. Huntsman (W '59), Steven A. Cohen (W '77), Caren S. Franzini (WG '84) & Aditya Mittal (W '96).

The 2008 Joseph Wharton Awards Dinner will continue to build on its past success, and strengthen the notion that the Wharton Alumni Association is one of the most exclusive and powerful communities in the world.
