Welcome from the Dean

Dear Wharton Alumni and Friends,

Please accept my invitation to join us for the Wharton Global Alumni Forum, which will take place in Seoul on May 28-29, 2010. This will be the 16th Global Alumni Forum Wharton has held in Asia.
The theme of this year’s Forum is “A Whole New World: Where Do We Go From Here?”.  All meetings will take place at The Grand Hyatt Seoul, presenting an ideal setting for our exciting and unique program.

In “A Whole New World: Where Do We Go From Here?,” the Global Alumni Forum will offer insight from alumni and friends on the most significant issues in today’s marketplace, enabling us to bring new strength and thought leadership to our global audience.

With the School’s exceptional worldwide network of 85,000 alumni, the Forum in Seoul will produce a number of engaging dialogues and discussions on today’s most relevant and timely business topics. Throughout the history of Wharton’s Global Alumni Forums, these exchanges have served as a catalyst for innovation, allowing best business practices to be shared on an international scale.  I look forward to seeing you in Seoul and building greater engagement with Wharton’s distinguished community and beyond.
