Today’s executives operate in an increasingly uncertain and complex business world. Since 1988, senior executives have relied on the Wharton Advanced Management Program (AMP) to separate the signal from the noise to amplify their leadership impact.
AMP, delivered in partnership with the Wharton Leadership Program, is led by Wharton faculty who bring extensive business knowledge, research, and expertise to bear on all aspects of the program. Core content is based on real-time business dynamics, economic challenges and opportunities, global trends, and market shifts.
AMP is an immersive five-week experience that challenges today’s senior leaders to advance professionally and personally. It is also highly selective; only about 60 participants are accepted to each session, creating an optimal learning environment with a globally diverse group of executives.
Upon completion of AMP, you'll be granted Wharton alumni status. You'll become a part of Wharton's 95,000+ global alumni network and have access to resources that facilitate both personal and professional growth through lifelong learning opportunities.
