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 600 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.

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.
