Black Wharton Undergraduate Association

February 7, 2011

The Black Wharton Undergraduate Association (BWUA) was founded in 1985 at the University of Pennsylvania.  Currently, it is one of the most successful minority student groups on Penn’s campus and comprises of a wide range of students at the undergraduate level.  BWUA also has a strong alumni network, which has contributed to the organization’s overall success.  BWUA strives to enhance the undergraduate experience of all Black students at Penn by serving as a resource for students interested in business and business-related activities.

The organization’s theme for this semester is “Beyond Business.” This year, the group hopes to extend its outreach and continue its dedication to the professional, social, and academic development of its general body.  To ensure the success of its members, BWUA creates avenues that provide students with opportunities and connections to the greater corporate community.  BWUA’s sponsors span across many industries; this allows the group to cater to the diverse interests of its members.

Black Wharton’s annual events include the Freshmen Luncheon, the Howard E. Mitchell Memorial Conference, the black tie GALA community benefit, and a variety of workshops.  For more information on the legacy of BWUA and future events, please contact or visit the group’s website at
