Investment Banking at Wharton
Wharton Matching Program: What
A matching application developed by MBACM allowing companies and student interviewees to rank candidates and banks. Using an algorithm developed by Wharton faculty, these rankings are used to match candidates and banks resulting in enhanced recruiting
and offer outcomes for both parties.
Wharton Matching Program: Why • Bank Benefit
• A lot of time and resources are invested in recruiting Wharton MBA students.
• It can be frustrating if an offer is given to a student who is not interested in accepting and/or an individual who delays their decision only to decline.
• Our goal is to eliminate these circumstances by recommending matches to the banks based on student and bank preferences.
• Student Benefit
• There is a subset of students who are only considering 1-3 banks, but go on to receive multiple offers (5+).
• As a result of banks exhausting their offers on this group, their classmates’ chances of receiving an offer are diminished.
• Our goal is to limit the number of offers a student can receive to 3 so that more students have the opportunity to receive offers.
Wharton Matching Program 2.0
• Results:
• Next Year: • Later offer date to allow for all final rounds to be completed in a timely manner • Maximum of 3 offers across bulge/boutique firms will remain in place
