Flexible Core & Elective Courses

Wharton MBA students register for most flexible core and elective coursework through Course Match.

Additional information pertaining to flexible core and elective coursework, including course descriptions and syllabi, may be found in SPIKE’s Courses tab or Syllabi@Wharton.

Further information as it relates to courses registered for outside of Course Match may be accessed through the links below:

Students may take elective coursework at Penn’s other schools. Students may count up to 4cu of non-Wharton, graduate-level coursework toward the MBA degree. Graduate-level coursework is usually defined as any course at or above the 500-level, however exceptions have been made for language courses designed for “advanced” students or “professionals.”

If you have a question as to whether or not a course taken at another school at Penn can count toward the MBA degree, please contact your academic advisor or email mbaprogram@wharton.upenn.edu before choosing to register.

To register for coursework at one of Penn’s other schools, please either follow the instructions issued by the school or send a request to enroll (including your name, PennID, and the course section number [Ex. FNAR-600-001]) to mbaprogram@wharton.upenn.edu.
