The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania

The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania was established in 1981 by American entrepreneur and industrialist Joseph Wharton as the world’s first collegiate school of Business. The Wharton School maintains a long tradition of educating visionary business leaders and has become the most comprehensive source of business knowledge in the world — with over 240 faculty members, 98,000 alumni, 5,000 students across 10 academic departments, 20 research centers, and more than 9,000 executive education participants annually.

Exchange places

There are up to 3 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places available.This equates to 3 students going for a full academic year OR 6 students for a single semester OR a mixture of the two. 

Eligibility for King's students

Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.

Only students on a 60% average will be nominated to The Wharton School, as per their admission requirements.

King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them. 

Estimated living costs

Student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Please see here for current estimated living costs (tutition fees do not apply). A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees.
