If you ever wonder what inspires our occasionally ripping on the hype surrounding the “Wharton brand” — it is people like this who stir our nerves.
Perhaps you’ve heard about this fellow Frank Reynolds, who has sued Penn because he claims the university didn’t give him the Wharton degree he signed up for. If not, let’s catch you up to speed.
We wrote about this whole ordeal in October, but now there’s another update.
Reynolds enrolled in the Executive Master’s in Technology Management (EMTM) program, which is a professional degree program run through Engineering with a Wharton cosponsorship. Students get a Master’s Degree in Engineering but a certificate signed by both the Wharton and Engineering deans. Still, it is an Engineering program–and seems like a good one at that.
