Spring Start

The academic calendar for first-year students at Lauder begins in May. That means MBA students are on the University of Pennsylvania campus before the bulk of their Wharton classmates arrive, so they get a head start when it comes to making friends in the Lauder Institute’s tight-knit community. JD/MA candidates start the program just after their first year of law school ends, so they are already well-oriented to the Penn campus and Philadelphia. All students graduate from Lauder with their business or law school class.
