Dietrich Hall, opened in 1952, was one of the first buildings erected on campus after World War II and the first built exclusively for The Wharton School. In 1983, the adjacent Steinberg Hall was added. Serving as the center for the School’s administration, it also houses several academic department offices, classrooms, conference rooms, Joe’s Café, and two newly renovated lecture halls with audiovisual technology.
Lauder-Fischer Hall is home to the Joseph H. Lauder Institute for Management and International Studies. It also features offices, common spaces, and classrooms used by students in the Wharton/Lauder joint MBA/MA program for international business.
Built in 1972 to house Wharton graduate programs, this building also holds administrative offices, classrooms, and modern meeting spaces. Built of concrete, steel, and glass, it is an example of the Philadelphia School of Architecture’s stunning design capabilities.
