Venture Registration

The goal of the Leadership Program is to provide experiential learning opportunities to as many students as possible during their two years at Wharton.

The Program uses the CourseMatch registration system in an effort to efficiently allocate these opportunities among the students who express the highest level of utility for them.


Process and Policies

Any student that has been accepted to Wharton and is scheduled to earn a degree from Wharton is eligible for any of the programs, regardless of their location/school affiliation at the time of the event. This includes – but is not limited to – students who are doing dual degrees or exchange programs with other schools either within or outside of Penn. Students should input their true preferences for all expeditions and intensives. The system will assign programs fairly. There is no limit to the number of expeditions or intensives that a student can select – and assigning utilities to multiple programs does not limit the student’s ability to win any given program for which he/she has assigned a utility over another student.

Priority is given to 2Y students who have not participated in any venture and 1Y students.
