Fees paid by participating journalists cover only a portion of the cost of the Wharton Seminars for Business Journalists. The Wharton School and generous corporate and foundation sponsors underwrite honoraria for faculty as well as the costs of classroom facilities, materials, and meals.

Among the benefits of sponsorship:

  • Association with world-renowned media outlets and the Wharton School.
  • Representatives of participating companies are given recognition during the program and are the distinguished guests of honor at the “Sponsors’ Dinner,” held during the program.
  • Organizations are given full recognition in promotional materials, including a link from the Seminars Web site.
  • Contribution counts toward full participation in the Wharton Partnership Program.
