Executive Education Program Provides Lifelong Learning for Senior Executives on Critical Issues

— Wharton Executive Education announced today its 2005 calendar of Wharton Fellows Master Classes. Sessions will be held in critical locations around the world to help senior executives gain deep knowledge on topics that will help them transform their business.

“One of the most important connections we can foster with senior executives around the world is to help them continue to actively participate as lifelong learners with Wharton,” says Wharton Vice Dean for Executive Education Jon Spector. “The Wharton Fellows network and master classes represent many of the critical guiding principles at Wharton: innovation, global orientation, deep knowledge and lifelong learning.”

Founded in 2000, Wharton Fellows – part of the Wharton Executive Education program – goes beyond traditional executive development. It is designed by and for senior leaders, offering relevancy, networking and exclusivity. Wharton Fellows includes a series of master classes — regular onsite sessions held in key business centers around the world, providing an opportunity for exchange and exploration of critical issues that capitalize on the value of the location. Each program allows top executives to get inside top global organizations and engage in high-level discussions with senior leaders.

“Participating in the culture first-hand during corporate visits to locations around the world is worth much more than just reading or hearing about it,” says current Wharton Fellow Gary Chau, who leads the Bombay Sapphire brand for Bacardi. “When executives who are knee-deep in change talk about their learning, it is hard not to hear the lessons. And quite intuitively, Wharton designs the overall learning plan into quick, actionable opportunities in parallel with how our business functions today — small steps for fast, positive results.”

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania is recognized around the world for its academic strengths across every major discipline and at every level of business education. Founded in 1881 as the first collegiate business school in the United States, Wharton has approximately 4,600 undergraduate, MBA, and doctoral students, more than 8,000 participants in its executive education programs annually, and an alumni network of more than 80,000 worldwide.
