Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

UPenn's Teacher Education Program is a one-year Grad program to get your Master's Degree in Education. It is a rigorous year but completely rewarding. Before the program, I had zero classroom teaching experience. Just a week shy of graduation and I now feel completely prepared for running my own classroom.

Degree: Secondary Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

Studying at Penn Graduate School of Education was overall a great experience. I was in the Teacher Education Program, which gets a little less attention and support than the rest of the programs in GSE. The focus of TEP is urban education, and our classes and full-year teaching placements do as much as any school possibly could to prepare you for the realities of the profession. It's a small cohort with pretty great people, so my experience was definitely a positive one.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2006

The undergraduate experience at Wharton is out of this world with the global diversity and caliber of students it attracts. The network has been so helpful for me in my professional life.

Graduation Year: 2008

Great school with lots of brilliant people. The mindset and culture of the institution is largely dominated by Wharton, however.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Penn provided an excellent academic experience. Coming from the West Coast it took me a couple of semesters to get used to the more intense atmosphere but by my senior year I did not want to leave! Having a Penn degree also opens a lot of doors - I know that where I went to school played a key role in why I was chosen for some of my internships and my job after college.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2001

Wharton's Management program is very challenging but worth every minute of studying! I feel as though the courses prepared me for my career in investment banking. The class environment can be quite competitive, so confidence and effort are must-haves. I wish I would have worked more closely with a few other professors in my department. I would also have benefitted from taking a few more courses in the College (University of Pennsylvania).

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 1997

I really enjoyed my college experience and how the university offers students the ability to specialize based on going to a specific school within the university ( nursing, wharton, communications, etc.) I felt that I was at an advantage during job interviews and my first job by having attended Wharton. I also think that you do not need to obtain an MBA if you attend Wharton undergrad (although many do so).

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2002

Good share of top professors. School (students and faculty) attitude is generally down to earth and "can do" attitude is all over the place. Excellent logistics and "liveability": MBA students live downtown (in rented apartments) and campus is a 20 min walk away (less with bike/bus/taxi). Upenn campus is very nice and Wharton School building (Huntsmann Hall) is just state of the art. Lots and lots of clubs and student life/parties/professional and leisure initiatives Excellent recruiting.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2010

Great clases with integrated approach both legal and economic. Great location and university campus offers all amenities to students for efficient work. Challenging classes, faculty members and classmates involve also personal challenges. This is an invaluable preparation for professional life.
