The mission of the cohort system is to create small, cohesive communities for a diverse Wharton undergraduate population.
The Cohort Experience
Before arrival in the fall, every student entering their first-year at Wharton is placed in one of nine cohorts comprised of approximately 60 students each. Freshman will also take Wharton 101: Business and You in the fall with their cohort.
In addition, a variety of events are planned for each cohort with a focus on programming for first-year students. Through these activities, students meet cohort members from their class year and other class years. This allows students to expand their personal and professional networks.
