You’ll start with a theory or abstract ideaand then look for problems to understand how thetheory applies.Start your own business, manage a clothingbrand, or even build a new car—with a degreefrom Wharton you can go wherever your pathleads you and be more effective in the careeryou choose.At Wharton you’ll study a range of businesssubjects—from accounting to entrepreneurshipRed Rocks Desert Leadership Trekto policy.
