Starting from an initial cohort of 233 in 2013, today, Wharton Guiding Undergraduates In Development & Education (GUIDE) is a Wharton Undergraduate Division sponsored organization at Penn with over 1,200 members and is the largest MBA-Undergraduate student group at Wharton.

We are predominantly known for our MBA Mentorship program, matching Juniors and Seniors with MBAs for mutual learning and mentorship.

Mission: GUIDE empowers undergraduates with opportunities that expand their perspectives, foster a sense of community, and challenge them to grow.

Purpose: To guide undergraduates in their personal development and educational endeavors through their time at Wharton and beyond.

Vision: To foster a community of leaders, ready to make their mark on the world.


We are currently recruiting freshmen and sophomores for the Operations Committee and the Communications Committee.

As part of the Operations Committee, you will help organize a variety of events including:

- Socials within the undergrad and MBA boards, as well as socials for the mentors and mentees in our GUIDE community.

- Career events for the entirety of the Wharton community, such as panels and coffee chats.

- Events designed to foster relationship building between mentors and mentees.

- Any other initiatives you are passionate about!

As part of the Communications Committee, you will work closely with the Communications Director and the Director of Social Engagement in:

- Internal Communication: manage club-wide emails, update the club calendar, and encourage active mentor-mentee participation in events.

- External Communication: promote the club events on our diverse social media platforms and develop initiatives to engage with the wider Wharton and Penn community at the undergraduate and MBA level.

- Any other initiatives you are passionate about!

Question: Can Non-Wharton students join the club and get the same benefits? - Anonymous
Hi there, as a division sponsored organization, we operate on the same level as Wharton Council and Wharton Cohorts so our program offerings for non-Wharton students is limited. Our events are open to all undergrads, however, for the most part, our marketing and outreach efforts are primarily towards Wharton students. After our initial match round (~Late September), we may be able to evaluate our mentor availability and provide a match or referral to non-Wharton students.

Question: Do you connect juniors or seniors with MBAs? - Anonymous
Yes, we do. If you are a Wharton junior or senior, matches are guaranteed. Please check your email in the coming weeks from the Wharton Undergraduate Division for a survey to indicate your preferences for a MBA mentor.

Question: Do you match freshmen or sophomores with MBAs? - Anonymous
No. After conducting a number of pilots matching underclassmen with MBAs over the years, we have determined that the benefit to either group is marginal. We encourage freshman to apply for an upperclassman mentor through Wharton Cohorts and sophomores to apply for an alumni mentor through SAMP.
