Educational and Networking

Answer

Alumni often join Wharton clubs for networking and educational programming. It is important to provide your members with content that they would not be able to find elsewhere. What industries are common in your area? Is there a certain newsworthy topic? Your staff liaison can work with your club and the offices of Undergraduate Career Services and MBA Career Management to tailor specific career programming to your region or affinity. Ideas include:

• Industry panels relevant to the location

• Investment/retirement planning seminars

• Monthly or quarterly career speaker series 

• Monthly leads council

• Industry-specific networking events

• Events specifically for alumnae

• Peer coaching or mentoring programs

• Evening networking/speed networking reception with cocktails
