About the Wharton Global Alumni Forums

The Wharton School holds annual Global Alumni Forums as a service to its alumni and friends. The purposes of the Forums are:

    • To provide personal and professional networking opportunities for alumni and to encourage the local alumni clubs;
    • To strengthen the bonds between the School and its alumni;
    • To promote the School in an important center for global business;
    • To give global thought leaders a forum to discuss important ideas; and
    • To offer Wharton faculty and staff an opportunity to learn about important economies outside the United States.

Since their founding in 1993, Wharton’s Global Alumni Forums have been held fifteen times in Asia; twelve times in Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and ten times in Latin America.
