“I was really impressed with the range and depth of material covered in an engaging manner. There’s such a wealth of knowledge in academia regarding these financial topics we cover every day, so to have access to the expertise of professors at Wharton is invaluable.”

“The Seminars were very informative and engaging. The professors did a great job of bringing to life subject matter that can often be abstract and dull.”
