Nonprofit Board Fellows

The Nonprofit Board Fellows Program matches Wharton MBA students with Philadelphia’s nonprofit organizations.

This is an experiential learning opportunity with mutual benefit for both students and the nonprofits with which we partner. Our program places second-year MBAs on boards of local nonprofit organizations, where they serve as “Visiting Board Members”, gaining valuable board experience and supporting the mission of the partner organization.


To be the experiential leadership development program at Wharton that educates MBA students on nonprofit board governance.


To develop MBA students as leaders who seek a life-long commitment to community involvement and board service, resulting in value creation for nonprofit organizations and communities.
