Wharton Penn

A Word From Our President

Clinton Hess W'93

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Wharton-Penn Alumni Association of the Philippines!

In these pages you will find a lot of information about your club – on our rich history, your fellow members, our purposeful and exciting events and our community outreach. If you haven't signed up to become a member yet, I highly recommend joining so you can appreciate what it's like to be part of a highly engaged, diverse yet closely knit, enterprising and compassionate community. If you're not yet sure, at least sign up for our communication list so you are kept abreast of club activities.

This website serves as the portal that connects Wharton and Penn alumni, Executive Education graduates, short course certificate holders, past and present faculty, as well as existing and incoming students of the University of Pennsylvania.

We are continuously improving the site to make it more meaningful and useful to members. We invite you to keep revisiting the website from time to time to view photos from recent events, find out details on upcoming activities and simply check out our resource links that you may find helpful. We will be adding features such as online payment gateways for membership sign ups and renewals, Lifelong Learning videos, networking forum, employment opportunities and a host of others as new, relevant technologies become available.

Civic engagement has always been a core value of our great University and our beloved founder Benjamin Franklin. We encourage you to join us in one of our committees or help out in any of our signature programs. Once again, welcome to the University of Pennsylvania community in the Philippines, and I look forward to meeting you all at our events.
