On November 4-5th, nearly 300 graduates and students of
Wharton’s west coast EMBA program gathered at the San Francisco Museum of
Modern Art to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Wharton’s west coast campus. Joining in the festivities were Dean Harker, Professors Ziv Katalan, John Percival, Eric Bradlow, Ken Shropshire, Chris
Geczy and Howie Kaufold, director of the MBA Exec Program.
Coming from as far away as Shanghai and New York, alumni remarked on the value of reconnecting with classmates. "After only 4 hours, the lights came on and it was time to go home," said Laura Calaway, WG’03. "But there were still so many people for me to say hello to and catch up with." Stuart Brogan, WG’05, added, "For me it was all about the people, which I think is why so many in my class attended…an amazing group."
The reunion celebration continued on November 6th with a family brunch at Le Meridien Hotel. While the children were entertained with a clown, face painting and balloon making, the alumni and students continued
catching up with each other and reminiscing about their school days. All left renewed in their appreciation of the Wharton community. The big question at the end of the weekend was, "when
will we get together again?"
