Students have the option to design an individualized concentration if they cannot find a standard concentration that aligns with their interests. An individualized concentration consists of four CUs that are united by a common theme. An established concentration may also be tailored, with approval from the concentration advisor, to specific student interests by replacing a required course with one not on the list of courses that traditionally defines the concentration.
Students should note that (1) at least three of the courses must be business courses, and (2) a faculty member from the Wharton academic department most closely associated with the individualized concentration must sign off on the proposal.
Individualized concentration proposals are considered by the Undergraduate Division Petitions Committee. Students who wish to pursue an individualized concentration should complete the following steps:
- Consult with an academic adviser in the Undergraduate Division to discuss your proposal prior to submission.
- Fill out the Individualized Concentration Proposal form.
- Submit the completed form to the front desk in the Wharton Undergraduate Division (G95 Huntsman Hall).
