Wharton and Narendra Modi’s missing speech3 min read 06 Mar 2013, 08:46 PM IST
It is ironic that Wharton finds itself in the news for thwarting diversity of opinion and personalities
One of my deeply etched memories at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania was leadership professor Mike Useem’s class on the day after the 11 September 2001 attacks. The adept manner in which he handled the tremendous outburst of emotions and encouraged diverse opinions on what should be the US’ immediate response was priceless and exemplified the true spirit of Wharton. Reputed universities globally thrive as pluralistic campuses and go to great lengths to foster diversity in their classrooms. It is, therefore, ironic that the Wharton School finds itself in the news for thwarting this very diversity of opinion and personalities at its annual student-organized conference—the Wharton India Economic Forum.
