Wharton’s world-class reputation has been built around its strength in finance. But aspiring MBAs considering a particular school need to look beyond the stereotypes and make sure they research everything a particular school offers.
For example, the 7th annual Wharton Marketing Conference was held on Friday, November 12, 2010 at the Philadelphia Park Hyatt Hotel. The conference brought together nearly 300 students, faculty, alumni, and marketing experts and thought leaders from a diverse array of backgrounds under the theme “Captivating the Consumer in Times of Change.” You can read more about this conference here.
