On Tuesday, February 12, 1991, the faculty of the Wharton School approved a plan to design and test a new paradigm for its MBA curriculum—the most far-reaching restructuring of its MBA program since the 1960s.

The new graduate program, which will initially be launched with 130 students in two experimental cohorts this fall, not only creates a new framework for the MBA program. It also creates a mechanism for continuous innovation that will ensure that Wharton remains on the leading edge of management education in years to come.
