Penn-Wharton China Center Builds Bridge to China
May 2, 2013
W’92, is a proud Penn alumnus whose philanthropy and engagement with Wharton is
a family tradition. His father, Laurence Za Yu Moh, WG'53, established two
scholarships for MBA students from his native China and endowed two
professorships at Wharton, including the first Wharton Chair ever endowed by an
alumnus from outside the U.S. The family foundation's recent gift will help
establish the Penn-Wharton China Center
in Beijing and continue the Moh family's interest in building bridges between
China and Penn.
China Center will offer an impressive menu of conferences, executive-level
courses, and opportunities for faculty research and academic collaboration,
extending the School's leadership in research and education throughout Asia.
Moreover, the learning experiences for Wharton students will be significantly
enhanced by the Center's physical location in Beijing, headquarters to many of
China's largest companies. For Michael, the significance goes even deeper.
"It demonstrates a strong commitment that Penn and Wharton believe in the
importance of China."
