Wharton Korea Undergraduate Business Society, also known as Wharton KUBS, is the only professional student-run organization at the University of Pennsylvania that focuses on providing a unique and professional experience to students interested in Korean businesses. Our mission is to promote awareness of Korean business among students at the University of Pennsylvania by providing opportunities for sharing professional knowledge. 

Our three main goals are: 

  1. To serve as a bridge between Penn’s student body and Korean businesses 
  2. To provide opportunities for students to learn about the Korean economy, politics, and business trends 
  3. To build a professional collegiate network with other business schools and organizations.
