** Ciao Website!

** Education

** D&I Wednesday

Join Wharton Entrepreneurship and Professor Karl Ulrich, Vice Dean of Innovation for: Technology Push, Market Pull, and the Search for Product-Market Fit

When: 10/1, 12- 1:30pm Where: JMHH 265

Innovation opportunities are sometimes born of technological possibility and sometimes of emergent customer needs. The first challenge for most new ventures is to find product-market fit; the matching of a solution and a need. This workshop outlines the three key questions that every start-up must answer in order to create value, and illustrates methods for answering those questions. The insights are valuable both for those entrepreneurs pursuing opportunities based on a new technology and for those attempting to find a solution for a need they have identified.

** Career

** WPP MBA Fellowship Program

The WPP MBA Fellowship is comprised of three one year rotations through WPP companies, with each rotation chosen on the basis of the individual’s interests and the Group’s needs. The multi-disciplinary rotation is unique in the industry and grooms future leaders. On completion of the Program, we work to find a position within the Group that takes advantage of the broad experience gained during the rotational Program. While most assignments are likely to be located in North America, other locations are possible.

The application for the 2015 WPP MBA Fellowship Program is now available on our website athttp://www.wpp.com/wpp/careers/marketing/mbas/. The program is aimed at developing high caliber management talent and provide experience across a range of marketing disciplines. Positions will be awarded to applicants who obtain an MBA from August 2014 – July 2015. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, October 15th at 11:59pm EST.

The WPP MBA Fellowship Program will also be making an on-campus presentation for Wharton second year MBA students on Tuesday, October 7th at 12:15pm - 1:00pm in Jon Huntsman Hall. We will also be holding coffee chats from 2pm - 4pm on Tuesday, October 7th at the UPenn Bookstore Starbucks.
