Knowledge for Business Journalists
Celebrating our 50th year, the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists have provided several thousand members of the media insight from Wharton faculty into topics such as financial markets, accounting principles, corporate strategy and the global economy.
San Francisco Seminars
Each year the Seminars visit West Coast locations including Wharton | San Francisco, which draws business leaders to its MBA for Executives program, executive education programs and outreach activities.
Seminars held outside the U.S. offer journalists access to Wharton faculty who customize their sessions to the locale. Past sessions in Hong Kong and Madrid were held in conjunction with Wharton Global Forums, large-scale business conferences, to which Seminars attendees are also invited.
The diversity of journalists attending creates a rich environment for learning alongside the faculty of the Wharton School.
The New York Times
“The Wharton Seminars were a valuable opportunity to step out of the newsroom and into the classroom to gain a deeper understanding of the many issues I report on every day.”
“It’s an incredibly useful program that combines the knowledge of prominent academics with excellent questions from fellow journalists.”
