"The Wharton China Business Society is an important co-curricular student organization that helps create opportunities for Wharton undergraduates to learn more about and become more involved in the dynamic Chinese economy. The society forges links between students, Chinese firms and multinational firms with business interests in China. These relationships ensure a rich learning experience for our students and bring an exceptional pool of student talent to work within the challenging environment of the world's fastest growing national economy. I applaud the motivation, energy and innovative spirit that drive the student members of the Wharton China Business Society in the many programs, conferences and activities they present every year. Their efforts are an invaluable complement to the academic training they receive through their coursework in preparing them for careers of leadership in the global market."
