Here are top 5 reasons to consider a MBA from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

1. Cluster System – A cluster is a group of about 210 students and is comprised of three cohorts (each cohort consists of about 70 students). This is a community, which helps students create close friendships and connections within the larger school. Students get to know members of their cohort through classes and broaden this community through their assigned cluster.

2. Faculty – Wharton’s 225-plus professors are one of the largest, most published faculties at any business school. Their standing and affiliated faculty members work within and collaborate across 10 academic departments

3. Wharton Fellowship Program – Wharton considers all admitted students for Wharton Fellowship support. Criteria for selection of awards may include academic achievement, compelling leadership, exceptional professional development, and unique personal qualities. There is no formal fellowship application, and notification of fellowship support is included with the admission decision.

4. Extracurricular activities – The experience at Wharton will extends beyond curricular life. Wharton has clubs to match almost every interest. Clubs are created by students and reflect their entrepreneurial spirit–if students have an idea for a new club, they can create it.

5. Commitment to diversity – At Wharton, diversity is not defined by geography, gender or professional background, but by how life experiences have shaped the members of the class. Whatever your background or lifestyle, you’ll find the support you need at Wharton and Penn.
