Wharton EMBA John Paul MacDuffie

Summer Brain Gain: Management Prof. John Paul MacDuffie Kicks Off Faculty Speaker Series

Join us for a special admissions event featuring a presentation by Wharton Prof. John Paul MacDuffie, who will discuss how the “mobility of people and things” is undergoing a once-in-a-century transformation. Drawing on his research in the global automotive industry and experiences as director of Wharton’s Program on Vehicle and Mobility Innovation (PVMI), Prof. MacDuffie will discuss how new technologies and business models are bringing high levels of investment as well as the entry of companies from the tech sector into an industry long dominated by automotive giants.

Before his presentation, Admissions Director Barbara Craft will provide a brief overview of the Wharton MBA Program for Executives and share what it takes to earn the top-ranked Wharton MBA while continuing to live and work in the Bay Area. There will also be time to network with alumni and students and learn about their experiences in the program.
