Special Interest Groups

To better serve our local alumni, the Penn-Wharton Club of the Dominican Republic would like to develop a series of interest groups to provide focused programming and community support around the specific needs of a subset of alumni. Two groups are already hosting regular programming. If you are interested, please contact the listed group organizer.

Active Groups

Wharton High School Investment Competition

Organizers: Fabian Mendy, Jacinto Diaz, Jose Miguel Prieto, Gustavo Camilo

The Penn-Wharton Club of the Dominican Republic organizes and encourages Dominican high school students to participate in the Wharton Global High School Investment Competition. The competition is a free, online investment simulation for high school students (9th to 12th grade) and teachers. Students work in teams of four to seven, guided by a teacher or other skilled advisor. Together, they learn about teamwork, communication, risk, diversification, company analysis, industry analysis and investing.
