Prof. Peter Cappelli Shares Tips for Asking for EMBA Sponsorship
February 7, 2013

Asking your employer for sponsorship to an executive MBA program isn’t always easy to do.  Many companies don’t have a formal tuition reimbursement program in place, or the policy is limited. During a recent online chat, Wharton Prof. Peter Cappelli, director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources, shared a few tips for applicants about how to discuss this important topic with employers.

Here’s an overview of what he said:

Who do you ask?

How do you begin the process? First, think about who you will talk to. A common problem is that the person you plan to talk to isn’t high enough up in organization to make the decision about sponsorship. If that is the case, then ask if you think they are on your side. If they’re not an advocate for you, then try to talk to the person who can make the decision. However, if they are an advocate for you, then it might be better for them to make the case on your behalf.

Wharton | San Francisco Runs Quant Review Workshop for Prospective Students
December 2, 2012

We often get the question “Do you need to be a math major to succeed in Wharton’s EMBA program?”  The answer is no.  As Wharton | San Francisco EMBA alumnus Mike Gipe, WG’05, puts it:  “Wharton’s EMBA program is very rigorous, but students from all types of backgrounds can be successful here.”

Mike - who runs the consulting business xaplap in Saratoga, CA and teaches a weekly tutorial session for core courses in the EMBA program - ran a one-day Quantitative Review Workshop on the San Francisco campus for prospective students.  “Anybody who has applied to our program likely has had most of the math courses they need so it’s more a matter of brushing up on those skills.  How often would a nonprofit manager need to use calculus on a daily basis?  It’s something a lot of people are rusty in and this workshop was designed to help them catch up,” says Mike.

Prof. Cappelli Discusses Career Trends and Value of MBA
March 13, 2012

When Prof. Peter Cappelli says that times have changed in terms of careers, he isn’t exaggerating. At a recent online live webcast from Wharton | San Francisco, Prof. Cappelli spoke to prospective applicants about why it’s more important than ever to take charge of your own career.

While it was once common to expect employment at the same company for your entire career, that is clearly not the case anymore. The same can be said of succession plans and workforce planning. Companies are more likely to replace talent from the outside and spend fewer resources grooming employees for long-term employment.

As for employees, they are changing jobs on a much more frequent basis. But at the same time, people are staying in the same function longer. This raises the issue of how do you get out of your silo? And if you stay at your company, how do you continue to add value when the company can’t be sure it will need your particular skillset down the road?

An MBA degree, he said, is a good avenue to consider. “It’s up to the employee to get the skills needed and keep those skills up to date. Employees have to manage their own careers and that is a difficult thing to do. It’s something that requires initiative, but often the opportunities are in front of you and you just have to figure out how to negotiate for them.”

This may mean spending time thinking about how to ask for sponsorship since companies in today’s economy may not have tuition reimbursement programs in place. “But if you can figure out what skills will be hot then you can make the case for going back to school. And if you can get those skills into your tool belt then you’ll be in a great position to take better control of your career,” he said.

Watch the replay of the webcast, which includes a tour of Wharton’s new facility in San Francisco and a Q&A session with alumni from both the East and West Coast EMBA programs.

Work-Life Balance, Sponsorship and Value: Online Women’s Chat Covers Wide Range of Topics
March 7, 2012

For those who might have missed it, we covered a lot of ground during our online women’s chat on Jan. 4th. Participants discussed everything from work-life-school balance to the value of an MBA for women to asking for sponsorship.

Adjunct Professor of Management Monica McGrath kicked off the talk with some encouraging numbers. Pointing out that 40% of the global workforce is comprised of women; she also noted that women are earning professional degrees in record numbers and starting businesses at faster rates than men.

The downside, she said, is that women don’t tend to have as robust networks as men. However, a significant benefit of Wharton’s MBA Program for Executives is that it is a great opportunity to really broaden your network, she said.

As for the decision to spend two years while working to earn an MBA, McGrath acknowledged that it can seem like a long commitment. “But when you look back over the course of your entire career, it will have been a meaningful degree for over 40 years so it’s really a short period of time to invest.”

Wharton | San Francisco COO Shares Highlights of Move to New Facility
January 20, 2012

Having recently overseen the move of Wharton’s West Coast facility into the Hills Brother Building on San Francisco’s Embarcadero, we asked COO of Wharton | San Francisco Bernadette Birt to tell us about the move and the new campus.

Q. Students experienced the new facility for the first time in early January. How have they reacted?

There have been a lot of ‘Wows!’ which are exactly what we want to hear.  They are thrilled with the quality of the classroom experience, the number of group study rooms, and having places to connect with each other during the day. For example, we have an incredible dining space with stunning views of the San Francisco Bay where our students love to gather with their laptops and iPads to collaborate and relax as the sun sets.
