[photopress:Wharton.jpg,full,alignright]First understand where Wharton stands in the scheme of things. In business colleges it is difficult to go higher. Wharton School is the business school of the University of Pennsylvania and was established in 1881 through a donation of Joseph Wharton, making it the world’s oldest business school.
It has been ranked the best business school in the world by the Financial Times in every year in which the FT has ranked business schools, except for 2005, when it tied with Harvard.
Wharton School has over 300 standing professors, the world’s most published and most cited business school faculty, and its 8 student-to-faculty ratio is one of the best among U.S. business schools.
The admissions process at Wharton is highly selective — it is one of the most competitive business schools in the U.S. You need to be very good to get in. It is known as a popular destination for Rhodes Scholars upon their return from Oxford University.
Now you can take a deep breath and know that Wharton School Faculty recently announced three new MBA exchange programs with two of the institutions being in China:
Guanghua School of Management, Peking University, Beijing.
Chinese European International Business School (CEIBS), Shanghai.
The opportunity for MBA students to participate in these exchange programs will begin next year.
