One of the goals of the Wharton Private Equity & Venture Capital Association, is to strengthen the link between its members and alumni working in the PE/VC industryand the school in a way that is relevant and compelling.

Treks are an important and valuable opportunity whereby students connect with industry professionals in cities around the globe 
with the goal of building relationships, gaining insight into market trends, and securing attractive career opportunities thereby continuing to strengthen the Wharton brand.
