Wharton EMBA in Philadelphia

At Wharton’s historic Philadelphia campus, EMBA students become part of Penn’s Ivy League community. Our East Coast campus is bustling with activity, as undergraduate and graduate students across the university create a dynamic learning environment. EMBA students take classes in Wharton’s primary classroom building, the state-of-the art Jon M. Huntsman Hall, and they stay over at either the Inn at Penn or the Steinberg Conference Center.

Given our proximity to New York City and Washington, D.C., many of our students work in fields related to finance, consulting, and management. They also work in a wide range of other areas, including health care, real estate, energy, technology, and entrepreneurship as well as not-for-profits and the government.

Wharton’s EMBA program follows the same part-time format and structure at our locations in Philadelphia and San Francisco. EMBA students on both coasts earn the same Wharton MBA as full-time Wharton MBA students. They have the same rigorous curriculum, same admissions requirements, and are taught by top Wharton faculty. After graduation, they join the close-knit EMBA alumni community as well as the Wharton network comprised of nearly 100,000 alumni around the world.
