Dear Alumni,

At Commencement this May, Wharton welcomed more than 1,500 new members to the School’s global alumni community. On behalf of the Alumni Association, it is a great pleasure to congratulate these graduates of the undergraduate, MBA, executive, master’s, and doctoral programs on achieving alumni status. Upon graduation, our relationship with the School does not end; it merely enters a new phase—offering us tremendous benefits and opportunities.

Whether you are a newly minted graduate or have just celebrated a milestone reunion, the Wharton Alumni Association is here to help you stay connected and experience the School’s numerous resources for alumni, including:

• WhartonConnect: a comprehensive online alumni community

• More than 80 regional and affinity clubs throughout the world

• Three Global Alumni Forum events each year in Latin America, Asia, and Europe/Middle East/Africa

• Reunions, professional development opportunities, and other special events around the globe

Connect to all of these Wharton alumni resources, and more, at:

As Wharton graduates, we are among the world’s most uniquely qualified individuals. While much is expected of us, the rewards are immeasurable. For those who remain engaged, the School and its worldwide alumni community can be instrumental in shaping careers, global perspectives, and personal and professional relationships. Wharton will always be your intellectual home, so I hope that you will stay involved—participate in your reunion, return to campus, or attend a global Wharton event. Your active involvement is what helps to keep the Wharton brand strong.
