Women are thriving in Wharton’s EMBA programs on both coasts. Like the general student population, women pursue the program when the time is right for them professionally and personally. Women join the program as Fellows, mid-level managers, executives and entrepreneurs. They come from financial services, science and technology, marketing and sales. They come from Texas, Massachusetts, Washington (the District and the State), Georgia, Southern California, New York and even outside the U.S. They come with solid quantitative skills, clear goals and strong interpersonal qualities. But, unfortunately, they come in smaller numbers.
While more women than ever are graduating from college, fewer women are pursuing graduate business education. Several societal and career pressures influence this trend, and the Wharton EMBA program distinguishes itself by providing a very high degree of support for its applicants and students. Strong formal and informal networks of Wharton women also exist to champion one another through the rigors of the program and after graduation.
Whether you are definitely applying to b-school or are still weighing your options, we hope you’ll join us for some or all of this chat.
