BRIDGING DISCIPLINES

The Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology combines academics from Penn Engineering and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. This coordinated dual degree program places innovation at the forefront of the curriculum. Integrating knowledge from these disciplines best prepares our students to solve the increasingly complex problems they will face as tomorrow’s leaders.


INTEGRATION LAB

The integration lab provides multi–track experiential learning framework and delivers the capstone event for M&T seniors. The goal of the lab is to provide students with opportunities to attack significant problems at the intersection of business and technology and hone the skills required to be leaders in the technology-driven economies of the future.

ABOUT THE M&T SUMMIT

M&T Summit Group Photo Integrate

Every year the senior capstone is structured around a specific topic of societal importance. Select student teams working on the topic are invited to present their senior design projects at an annual M&T Summit. The summit is a forum for faculty, students, alumni & thought leaders to present their work to the Penn community.  Students do not have to pick a project on the chosen theme but every M&T senior project requires a business analysis.
