Presidents' Message

On behalf of the Wharton Club of the United Kingdom, welcome to our website!

The mission of the Wharton Club of the UK is to serve the Wharton community in the UK by making it the go-to place for our members for professional development, premier social events and networking with alumni clubs of other academic institutions.

The UK Club is the largest overseas Wharton alumni club and, having been founded in 1975, many of our alumni carry significant influence in the global business community.  A large proportion of our members work in Investment Banking, Private Equity, Management Consulting, Commercial Banking and Investment Management, as well as Entrepreneurship and other commercial, governmental and not-for-profit roles. 

The Wharton School of Finance and Business is one of the constituent Schools of the University of Pennsylvania, with campuses and centres in Philadelphia, San Francisco and Beijing.  Founded in 1881 by Joseph Wharton, an industrialist and philanthropist, the School has almost 100,000 alumni worldwide with over 1,000 here in the United Kingdom.

If you are a Wharton Alumni and would like to join our alumni club, or wish, as alumni of another Penn college, to engage with us, we look forward to hearing from you!

Yours in service,
Sat Pillai & Henry Ford
