The Wharton India Economic Forum (WIEF) is an annual student-run India-focused conference hosted by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Since its inception 21 years ago, WIEF is one of the largest and most prestigious India-centric business conferences bringing together business and political leaders, professionals, academics and students from around the world to discuss India’s evolution into a prominent global economic power, and the key challenges which it still faces.

The purpose of this conference is to promote dialogue on the circumstances shaping the current business landscape in India and how the diverse sectors of the industry can be harnessed jointly to create a positive change. The collaboration of academics and students from diverse backgrounds (including Wharton MBAs, Penn Law, Penn Design and Penn Engineering) with professionals working in Finance, Consulting, Economics, Entrepreneurship and Media and Entertainment can facilitate a dialogue between sectors.
