Each fall 70 MBA students experience an unusual kind of immersion learning in Wharton’s Semester in San Francisco program. Most choose the option in order to explore entrepreneurship, technology, and recruiting in the Bay Area. Students apply for the program in their first year to attend in Fall of their second.
All classes and coordinated extracurricular activities are held at the Wharton San Francisco campus located at the Hills Brothers Plaza on the Embarcadero, while students take advantage of recruiting and site visits throughout the region.
A lineup of top Wharton professors teaches a customized curriculum, selected in part by participating students. In Fall 2016, offerings included Technology Strategy from Prof. Karl Ulrich, Venture Capital and the Finance of Innovation from Prof. David Wessels, and Digital Marketing and Electronic Commerce from Prof. David Bell.
John Byrne, editor-in-chief, of Poets and Quants hosts a video overview of the program. Watch the video:
