Welcome to the Wharton MENA Conference 2017

We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Wharton Middle East and North Africa Conference scheduled for Friday, March 31, 2017, on our campus in Philadelphia.

Through this year’s theme, “Region Under Transformation: The Future of MENA,” the Wharton MENA Conference will provide a platform for sharing the stories of MENA leaders, investors and entrepreneurs who are driving change in the region. We have a number of exciting speakers and panels planned for the day, covering topics that are relevant to the region, including healthcare, entrepreneurship, venture capital, innovation for refugees, private equity, arts, and many more.

We look forward to seeing you.

The Wharton MENA Conference Organization Committee


Wharton MENA is excited to be partnering with the Lebanese Club at Penn and the Lebanese Collegiate Network (LCN) this year, to provide a joint ticket that allows members to attend both the LCN Convention and the Wharton MENA Conference - both happening on the Wharton Campus. The LCN Convention starts after the MENA Conference, and runs through Saturday midnight.

The Convention brings in outstanding Lebanese speakers in real estate, entrepreneurship, communications, non-profit, immigration law, energy, and more. Check out the website and contact Riad Hamade for more information.
