The Wharton Alliance
The strategic alliance between INSEAD and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is based on the shared belief that tomorrow’s market leaders in management education must have global reach and be part of a global business education and knowledge network with a leadership position in America, Europe and Asia.
The decision to form the Alliance came about as the result of our mission to deliver global business education unmatched by any other business school in the world. Each school offers complementary centres of expertise and campus locations for a compelling worldwide network that no other school can offer. The two schools also share common values regarding the role and importance of lifelong business education.
Launched in 2001, the Alliance between the Wharton School and INSEAD combines the resources of two world leaders in management education to deliver top-quality company-specific and open-enrolment programs to executives across four dedicated campuses: INSEAD’s in Fontainebleau (France), and Singapore and Wharton's US campuses in Philadelphia and San Francisco.
Renewed for a further four years in 2008, the Alliance is an opportunity for MBA and PhD students to study across three continents. It also brings together the large and active alumni communities of both schools.
The INSEAD-Wharton Centre for Global Research & Education fosters deep collaborative relationships across the two schools and encourages exchange of faculty and doctoral students.
