Madrid le 30 avril 2010 : sur le thème " Un tout nouveau monde : et maintenant où allons-nous ? ".

Dean Thomas S. Robertson of the Wharton School said, "the goal of the Wharton Global Alumni Forum is to create a platform to discuss the many challenges and opportunities we incur in the current economic climate.
