To better prepare business students entering or returning to a transforming workplace, the Wharton School announced the introduction of two new curricula designations to debut this fall semester.
“There’s a growing awareness that issues like these affect business decisions and the bottom line,” said Witold J. Henisz, vice dean and faculty director of Wharton’s ESG Initiative. “We were looking for a way to signal that the questions around them might merit further study. So in July 2022, the School began a close examination of student programming to try to build on the strengths that were already there and to identify logical opportunities for expansion.”
