Beyond the MBA Classroom: From Philly to Florida for Wharton’s 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.
Beyond the MBA Classroom: From Philly to Florida for Wharton’s Beach Week - mbaMission

Each 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 in Miami, Florida, where they partake in almost a week’s worth of partying, relaxing, and beach-going. The week’s events are organized, but not funded, by the Wharton Graduate Association (student association). In recent years, more than 400 students have taken part in Beach Week. Activities offered during the 2016 Beach Week included multiple pool parties, a daytime boat cruise, and an evening beach party.
