Boston Joseph Wharton Award...

The Wharton Club of Boston presents the Boston Joseph Wharton Award in recognition of outstanding alumni contributions to the Boston business community and society at large.  The award is intended to celebrate the Wharton community's contribution to Boston.  It is given each year to an area alumnus who exemplifies Joseph Wharton's belief that extraordinary business leadership can be a significant force for improving society.

This year, we will also be awarding our first Young Alumni award to recognize the accomplishements of alumni whose outstanding early career progress point to great things ahead.

This year's awards will be presented at the Fall Kickoff Reception on September 18th, 2014.  Please see the "events" section of the Wharton Club site for event details.
