About the Wharton Black MBA Alumni Association (WBMBAA)

The Wharton Black MBA Alumni Association (WBMBAA, or "the Club"), was founded to serve the interests of the over 1,700 African and African diaspora alumni of The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. The spirit of the Club is to provide a platform that keeps the unique interests of our community highlighted and amplified in substantive ways.

Regular Membership in the Club is initially automatic and free of charge for all Wharton MBA alumni previously self-identified as being of African or African diaspora descent. Regular Membership is also available for any interested parties who submit a membership application.

The Club withholds the right to charge fees/dues at a later date. Members will be given ample notice when such changes will be implemented and members will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.
