The Wharton Partnership

The Wharton Partnership is the network of corporations and foundations that helps fuel Wharton’s contributions to the world. Partners invest human capital and financial resources in Wharton’s research enterprise, creating knowledge to advance business. They recruit at Wharton to infuse their organizations with qualities embodied by our students. Partners engage with the School to help them solve their biggest problems.

with Wharton

Your business faces challenges. Wharton has solutions: people, ideas, know-how


Wharton is a destination for companies seeking inspiration to solve their biggest problems — because we study those problems every day. Whether it’s faculty using corporate datasets to develop statistical models, or students applying their classroom learning to a “sticky” business problem, our partnerships with companies push us beyond simply disseminating what’s learned here: We help businesses put Wharton solutions to work.

Together with Wharton’s Corporate Partners, we have generated groundbreaking new ideas, connected companies to extraordinarily talented students, and transferred Wharton ingenuity to business. A small sampling of our Partners’ stories are represented here. If you can see your company in any of these examples — or if you can imagine expanding on these ideas and exploring new horizons together — please give me a call.
