Wharton Investment & Trading Group (WITG)

Pre-professionalBusinessUndergraduateWharton Council

Description

WITG is the premier undergraduate student group at the University of Pennsylvania that seeks to prepare students for personal and professional success in investing. We are the largest finance and education-oriented undergraduate club in Wharton, and focus on educating students about the principles of value investing, trading, and business analysis through hands-on learning and mentorship. 

The Development Team is a semester-long educational program that gives freshmen and sophomores the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of valuation and stock analysis with no required previous experience. 

Students also have the opportunity to join Investment Teams in which upperclassman ‘portfolio managers’ guide analysts in each group through the process of pitching a stock - from sourcing, researching, and valuing to effectively delivering a presentation.
