Specific Funding Priorities

Philanthropic support is critical to sustaining the success of the program and making Lauder’s top-tier curriculum within the reach of the most promising students. Your gift will strengthen the impact of the Institute as the world’s preeminent international joint-degree program, MA/MBA or MA/JD.

▼ Student Support

Providing assistance with tuition, experiential learning costs, and fees is a top priority for the Lauder Institute. This type of support increases students’ access to expert faculty and impressive alumni, cultural immersions in locations around the world, instruction in ten languages, and personal career guidance.

▼ Program Development

Only by offering the most innovative business education possible can the Wharton School and the Lauder Institute maintain their position and impact at the forefront of global business education. The Lauder Institute has launched several initiatives and ventures to fulfill its commitment to providing students experiential, life-changing programs.

▼ Faculty Research and Thought Leadership

Scholars of world renown and professors of practice, Lauder faculty are uncommonly qualified to bring a global perspective to critical issues in the humanities, social sciences, international business, and law. Dedicated research funds allow faculty to bridge the gap between theory and practice, providing students with real-world relevance.

▼ The Lauder Annual Fund

The Lauder Institute Annual Fund provides the Institute’s director with the resources to support the Institute’s most pressing needs at his or her discretion. In recent years these have included: the Global Program; dedicated global career advisor and Senior Global Fellows; leadership immersion opportunities; and engagement of the alumni community.

Adriana Castillo, G’22, WG’22
Guatemala City, Guatemala Major: Latin America – Portuguese

Career Goals: I want to make a career change from the public sector into impact investment, particularly in the Real Estate and Sustainability fields, with the ultimate goal of improving living conditions in Latin America. I’m also really passionate about paving the way for businesswomen in the region, and create mentorship opportunities for girls and women to succeed in traditionally male-dominated fields.

Class Experience: I have learned so much about myself ever since I started my Lauder journey. From joining the Spanish track meetings (I’m a native speaker of Spanish, but in the Portuguese track), I learned that I really enjoy teaching others, something that I didn’t know about myself!
