Our Work

Situation & Opportunity

In step with the pioneering spirit of Joseph Wharton, who established the world’s first collegiate school of business in 1881 at the University of Pennsylvania, Leonard Lauder’s vision redefined the MBA experience nearly 100 years later. The Lauder Institute is a joint degree program at the University of Pennsylvania that combines an MBA from the Wharton School of Business and an MS in International Studies with a focus on a foreign language from the School of Arts & Sciences.

By daring to challenge conventional approaches to business education, Mr. Lauder conceived the Lauder Institute to recognize the evolving shift toward globalization and the need for future leaders to thoroughly understand not only business, but also the language and culture of the markets wherein business is conducted.

The Lauder Institute Global Forum is an intensive, interactive, three-day summit that brings together Program alumni from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, notable thought leaders, industry-shaping executives, and honored guests. The event is held every three years at locations that rotate worldwide, reflecting the geographic dispersion of its alumni base.
