Only fully matriculated University of Pennsylvania freshman are eligible for transfer into the Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology (M&T). Students may only apply to transfer at the conclusion of their freshman year.

A student wishing to pursue this dual degree program must develop a plan of study including the remaining requirements necessary to complete degrees in both schools (The Wharton School and the School of Engineering and Applied Scienecs). The plans do not have to be optimal, but rather possible, given the requirements of both schools. Applicants should download the worksheet for their intended engineering major here, fill in completed and intended courses, and attach to their application. Wharton requirements and engineering major requirements are listed on either side of the fillable worksheet. 

Please note that Jerome Fisher students are required to take a minimum of 46 credit units to graduate.

Finalists must be available for a video interview. Interviews will be conducted in June and July

Minimum Requirements:

Minimum GPA: 3.6

Prerequisite Courses:
Math 104 and 114
One of the following: Physics 140 or Physics 150 (or for MEAM majors: Physics 151, MEAM 110 and/or MEAM 147)
SEAS / SAS Students: Economics 001 and 002
Wharton Students: Economics 010
