The Mask You Live In

The Mask You Live In is an acclaimed documentary (Sundance 2015, Variety, TIME) about how pop culture defines for us what it means to be a "man", and the problems brought about as a result, for boys, men, father-son relationships, partners, families, and society as a whole. 

Moderated by Professor Stew Friedman (founder of the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project) and co-sponsored by the MBA Program Office, The 22s, WWIB, The Wharthogs, and Wildmen, this event brings together men and women of the Wharton community for a viewing followed by a Q&A session.  Dinner from Baby Blue BBQ!

We highly encourage attendance at this event, joining the greater efforts underway addressing how the Wharton community can affect change on campus, in the workplace, and at home. 

When: Monday, April 13, 4:30-6:30pm

Where: JMHH 250

What: The Mask You Live In, by Jessica Siebel Newsom (WATCH THE TRAILER

Why: Lifelong learning, and FREE BBQ DINNER.

Voting for Teaching Awards closes TONIGHT at 11:59pm

Voting is now open for two of the teaching awards conferred to members of the Wharton faculty during the spring semester. Voting closes tonight, April 9th, at 11:59pm

Please follow the links below to cast your vote for:

The Helen Kardon Moss Anvil Award

The Core Curriculum Awards

Curricular Practical Training

International students who will have an internship or work in the US (paid or unpaid) will require work authorization. F-1 students can satisfy this requirement through either Optional Practical Training (OPT) or Curricular Practical Training (CPT). Most students will elect to use CPT as it does not use up the allotted OPT time. The MBA Program Office will offer a summer online course that satisfies the CPT requirement, MGMT891:900. To register for the MGMT 891 class, students are required to watch a 9 minute video which provides details about the course content and registration, and instructions on how to apply for CPT work authorization. Registration for Summer 2015 CPT is now open (Please do not apply for CPT through ISSS until your course registration is complete). Please use the Curricular Practical Training link on SPIKE to begin the process.
