What Recent Grads Say See All 13 Comments >

The caliber of students in Wharton's EMBA program is far above that of other schools. Two students in our program had 790 GMAT scores, which is but one of many indicators of tremendous intellectual horsepower of these students. Our former alumni include people such as Alex Gorsky (current CEO of J&J) who make themselves available to current students in the program. I could go on for pages, but no other program features students with the intellectual horsepower, pedigree and career trajectory of Wharton EMBA.
