About Knowledge@Wharton High School
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. We are a part of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, a world leader in business education.
Since our 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. At the same time, our resources support educators in building students’ entrepreneurship, leadership and related workplace skills.
Many of our student-focused articles, videos and podcasts tell stories through the experiences of teens from around the globe. Professional business journalists and student essayists write our articles and established educators prepare our lesson plans.
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. We are your education partner, and we strive to provide thought-provoking content that encourages students’ curiosity about the world and their own future, and inspires them to become critical and innovative thinkers.
KWHS also manages seminars, workshops and competitions to engage high school educators and students in quality, fun, interactive business and financial education.
KWHS is also a member of the Knowledge@Wharton network. Knowledge@Wharton is the Wharton School’s online business analysis journal, and has grown into a network of sites that includes KWHS, as well as a global edition in English and regional editions in Spanish, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
