Pennsylvania’s Wharton School to offer $167,000 ‘Diversity, Equity & Inclusion’ MBA program

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania will offer an MBA in “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” major beginning in the 2023 to 2024 academic year.

The Wharton School announced the new major in a Sept. 27 announcement after the Wharton’s Curriculum Innovation and Review Committee approved it.

Stephanie Creary, an assistant professor at the Wharton School, said in a press release that it recently opened new coursework that will “support students’ wishes to become more prepared for DEI-focused careers or leaders of DEI-related change in any organizational role.”

“In recent years, our students have challenged us to do more to prepare them for the new realities of leadership, which involve creating and sustaining diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizations,” Creary said.
