Attending Stonier is an intense, challenging and highly enjoyable experience! Over 6 days, you will be among 600 students and over 70 faculty members, enjoying a rich combination of team-based computer simulations, lectures and interactive sessions.

Here’s what you can expect from the virtual Stonier experience:

  • Easily navigate the convenient virtual platform managed by Wharton’s tech team and used at UPenn. It’s also the proven technology that made Stonier 2020 a success.
  • Learn from the renowned Stonier and Wharton faculty that deliver Stonier’s in-person program—offering the same in-depth, quality content.
  • Benefit from team collaboration and peer-to-peer exchanges with small group simulations. Simulations are challenging, competitive and designed for a virtual environment.
  • Get to know your classmates while you problem-solve, and enjoy plenty of built-in social networking opportunities, too. You’ll forget there’s even a computer screen between you.
