2010 Wharton Africa Business Forum
Join us for this year’s Wharton Africa Business Forum (“WABF”), "A Blueprint for Africa: Navigating the World’s Fastest Growing Continent".
First hosted in 1981, the forum was the first Ivy League MBA conference dedicated to Africa.
The goal of the forum is to increase dialogue on business in Africa by engaging companies operating on the continent, prominent business professionals, investors interested in the region, and leaders of academic thought. In 2009 the conference welcomed over 400 speakers, professionals, and MBAs from Africa, Europe, and the Americas.
The conference is anchored by keynote addresses delivered by prominent business leaders, and features several panel discussions, a business plan competition, career fair and networking receptions. In addition to the solid programming we have offered each year, in 2010 we are excited to introduce several new features including structured 1-to-1 networking meetings, a knowledge capture portal, and new panel formats such as our Private Equity GP/LP debate.
