The Wharton Partnership

The Wharton Partnership is the network of corporations and foundations that helps fuel Wharton’s contributions to the world. Partners contribute 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.

Work With Faculty

Tap into Wharton research and
thought leadership

Work With Students

Get fresh thinking on your
business challenges

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. Our collaborations with companies help us disseminate what’s learned here, and 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.
