Meet Wharton’s MBA Class Of 2025

Outlet: Poets & Quants

Beyond its brand, Wharton is, in many ways, still an ’everyman’ school. After all, it was the first school to bring its programming to the masses by investing heavily in MOOCs. This spring, Wharton became the first top business school to market an online hybrid MBA program too.

Wharton encourages MBAs to get off the sidelines and tackle big issues like poverty ad climate change using commercial tools. That makes the program all the more exciting for leaders like Nicolaj Siggelkow, Wharton’s vice dean.

“There is a realization that the biggest problems that society is facing will not be solved without businesses getting involved,” Siggelkow told P&Q in 2022. “Businesses have to be part of the solution, otherwise, we’re not going to get where we need to be – be it environmental, equity and inclusion, or otherwise. Wharton takes that really seriously and is making it part of our mission: To really create leaders that have a positive impact on the world.”
