Thank you for including Wharton MBA students in your recruitment considerations! We are always excited to connect employers with our talented club members and are happy to work with you to figure out how you can get involved.
To start, we regularly offer a range of programming opportunities to link employers with Wharton MBAs for full-time and summer internship opportunities:
Marketing Conference: The annual Wharton Marketing Conference is managed by the Marketing Club and features keynote speakers, panel discussions, and faculty presentations that focus on major trends and cutting-edge research in marketing. It also offers an opportunity for recruiters to build personal and professional networks through breakfast chats and lunches with current MBA students.
Case Competitions: Wharton MBA students love to participate in case competitions, and many are hosted annually by marketing-oriented companies seeking to recruit top business school talent. We encourage you to consider offering Wharton students a case competition to prove their skills - and get to know your company.
Lunch 'n' Learns: Lunch 'n' Learns are a wonderful opportunity for students to informally connect with recruiters. Participating companies typically share a case study or thought leadership piece as a way to educate students about the types of issues that marketers face in their everyday careers.
Day on the Job: One of the Wharton Marketing Club's most popular events is the annual Day on the Job series in which companies invite students to spend a day (or in some cases, half a day) at their headquarters to learn more about marketing and the roles available at their firms. Attendance is typically limited, so as not to overwhelm the recruiting company.
Career Treks: Students, along with the Wharton Career Management office, organize Treks to various cities across the United States and abroad to visit recruiting companies in that specific region. Students get a glimpse at the company's culture firsthand and recruiters get to network with potential summer MBA interns and full-time hires. In some cases, a Day on the Job is scheduled to coincide with a Career Trek.
Resume Books: Search our database of Wharton MBA students or alumni to find talented candidates for your openings. Purchased resume books are accessed on CareerPath in an online, searchable format. To assist you in your search, resumes are indexed by industry experience, industry preference, function experience, function preference, and geographic preference, among other categories.
Informational / Recruitment
Global Consulting Practicum: The mission of the Wharton Global Consulting Practicum (GCP) is to create a forum in which business school students can apply the concepts, methods and paradigms learned in the classroom to develop strategic and innovative marketing plans for organizations worldwide. By providing students with resources and guidance, the GCP endeavors to create an academic, social and ethically-minded atmosphere which cultivates experiential and dynamic learning, and which produces state-of-the-art results for clients.
Field Application Project: The Field Application Project (FAP) is a program designed to integrate years of advanced study by Wharton MBA students, as they apply what they have learned in class to the issues being faced by participating organizations. Student teams devote a total of approximately 200 hours conducting research and analysis in order to research a problem facing the host company and recommend an actionable solution. Each team is supervised by experienced Wharton faculty.
