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 Wharton freshman is placed in one of nine cohorts comprised of approximately 60 students each. Freshman year, students 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 freshmen and sophomores. 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.
