For more than 50 years, the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists have proudly hosted reporters, editors and producers from news organizations around the world.

The diversity of journalists attending—representing newspapers, magazines, broadcast and international news media—creates a rich environment for learning alongside the faculty of the Wharton School.
