My Leadership Experience

I came to Wharton specifically for its extensive and strong Leadership Programs. WLPs have been the highlight of my MBA experience. Whether I’m motivating a group of peers to keep trekking during our climb up Kilimanjaro or coaching a first-year student through their development goals as a Leadership Fellow, I’m constantly challenged by Wharton’s hands-on, comprehensive leadership programs.
