Knowledge@Wharton High School — KWHS for short — is on a mission to provide high school students and educators around the world with a deeper understanding of business and personal finance and to equip them with the skills to excel in the global marketplace. KWHS is a part of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, a world leader in business education.
Since its launch in 2011, KWHS has operated an online portal that features hundreds of business journal articles, videos and lesson plans, a comprehensive business glossary and other content to help introduce high school students to business concepts, personal finance and college and career preparation. Many of the student-focused articles, videos and podcasts tell stories through the experiences of teens from around the globe.
KWHS is an entirely free resource that is available to anyone who wants to use it – from students and teachers, to parents and academic coaches, to principals and youth leaders.
KWHS also manages seminars, workshops and competitions to engage high school educators and students in quality, fun, interactive business and financial education.
Two Band teams are currently participating in the KWHS Investment Competition. Last year, a Bandeirantes team was a global finalist in the KWHS Investment Competition. To learn more about the competition, refer to this link.
