Morgan State University, the historically Black educational institution in Baltimore, has entered into a partnership agreement with The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. This is the first time The Wharton School, one of the nation’s leading business schools, has entered into a partnership with a business school at a historically Black university.
Under the agreement, the Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management at Morgan State and The Wharton School will explore opportunities for cooperation among faculty and students at both educational institutions in conferences, curricular development, and research.
“Morgan’s continued growth is strengthened by successful collaborations and having opportunities to enter into mutually beneficial agreements like what we have been able to establish between the Wharton School and our Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management,” said David Wilson, President of Morgan State University. “This unique collaboration between an Ivy League institution and a Historically Black College and/or University will serve as a blueprint, creating innovative educational opportunities for students and faculty, spurring academic research. We look forward to growing this relationship and seeing it remain fruitful in the years to come.”
