Part of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Knowledge@Wharton High School (KWHS, for short) provides high school students and educators around the world with a deep understanding of business and personal finance and equips them with the skills to excel in the global marketplace. Since its launch in 2011, KWHS has operated an online portal that features hundreds of business journalarticles, videos, podcasts, and lesson plans; a comprehensive business glossary; and other content to help introduce high school students to business concepts, personal finance, and college and career preparation. At the same time, KWHS’s resources support educators in building students’ entrepreneurship, leadership, and related workplace skills. Many of the student-focused articles, videos, and podcasts tell stories through the experiences of teens from around the globe. Professional business journalists and student essayists write the articles, and established educators prepare the lesson plans. KWHS is free to anyone who wants to use it—students and teachers, parents and academic coaches, principals and youth leaders.
