Planning a Visit to the Wharton Campus

MBA Campus Visit Program

Come see for yourself. Our students, classes, and activities are the heart of the MBA experience. Schedule a visit to meet current students, tour our campus, and get a firsthand look at our diverse and collaborative culture.

In compliance with University health and safety protocols, our Campus Visits will have smaller capacity, and last 2-3 hours.

As you prepare for your visit, please review the guidelines and policies below.

  • Registration is required prior to arrival. We are unable to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time.
  • The University requires visitors to campus to be fully vaccinated and to comply with mask requirements.
  • Before arriving on campus, visitors must complete a PennOpen Campus pre-screening on the day of their visit. Each visitor must present their own Green Pass upon arrival.

Please note: Participating in a Wharton campus visit has no bearing on an applicant’s admissions decision.
