Beyond the MBA Classroom: Wharton Beach Week

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

In the spring, between finals and graduation, second-year students at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania prepare to reenter the “real” world by retreating to South Beach, Miami, Florida, where they partake in almost a week’s worth of organized partying, relaxing and beach-going. The week’s events are organized, but not funded, by the Wharton Graduate Association (student association).

For in-depth descriptions of social and community activities at Wharton and 15 other top MBA programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
