Wharton Glossary [Edit 1]

This is an attempt to create a glossary of acronyms, abbreviations and slang used by the Wharton community. If something's missing, please let me know by leaving a comment.

  • 32-Part Tariff: to come
  • Concert Rules: A set of rules Wharton MBA students are expected obey. Perhaps observed more in the breach?
  • CPG: to come
  • Dedicated Interview Period: to come
  • DIP: see Dedicated Interview Period
  • EIS: see Employer Information Sessions
  • Employer Information Sessions: to come
  • Etalk: A discussion forum for newly admitted Wharton MBA students and Wharton students. Each class of admitted students is given a URL to their own discussion forum where they can get to know each other prior to the official start of the MBA program. Frequent topics of discussion include housing, class selection, and events and meetups in various cities across the country.
  • GIP: see Global Immersion Program
  • Global Immersion Program: Wharton's Global Immersion Program (ugly homepage circa 1995 warning!) is an elective course for first-year students consisting of spring-semester classes followed by four-week study tours abroad. Research papers on the experience are due in the fall semester of students' second year.
  • H/S/W: to come
  • Huntsman: Jon M. Huntsman Hall, the home of Penn's Wharton programs, is located at the corner of Walnut Street and 38th Street in Philadelphia. The Wharton community is clearly proud of this 300,000-square-foot facility, which opened in 2002 at a cost of $140 million. It's even got its own website. Here's a map.
  • M/B/B: to come
  • PE: to come
  • Pub: to come
  • OPIM: Pronounced "Ahhp-uhm" or "Ahhp-im" (short "i"). Operations and Information Management (the rest of the world calls it MIS).
  • S2S: See "Student-2-Student"
  • SIM: to come
  • Student-2-Student: Wharton's Student-2-Student discussion forums are filled with posts from applicants, current students, and school administrators. According to the blurb:
    On [S2S] you can ask questions about the admissions process and life at Wharton; meet other prospective and current students; and get a glimpse of the kind of debates that go on everyday in the Wharton community. Student-2-Student works with the MBA Admissions Blog which we hope develops into a resource useful to all MBA applicants looking for answers to application questions, as well as links to a variety of useful MBA resources.
  • WGA: to come
  • Wharthogs: to come
  • Wharton Journal: to come
  • WJ: see Wharton Journal

Edit 1: Added definitions for concert rules and OPIM.
