Individualized Concentration

Students have the option to design an individualized concentration if they cannot find a standard concentration that aligns with their interests. An individualized concentration consists of four CUs that are united by a common theme.

An established concentration may also be tailored, with approval from the concentration advisor, to specific student interests by replacing a required course with one not on the list of courses that traditionally defines the concentration.

Students should note that:

  • At least three of the courses must be business courses.
  • A faculty member from the Wharton academic department most closely associated with the individualized concentration must sign off on the proposal.

Students who wish to pursue an indvidualized concentration should complete the following steps:

  1. Consult with an academic advisor in the Undergraduate Division to discuss your proposal.
  2. Submit an individualized concentration proposal. Note that documentation from a Wharton faculty member approving your proposal is required (see the proposal for details).

Individualized concentration proposals are considered by the Undergraduate Division Petitions Committee.
