The Wharton India Economic Forum (WIEF) is Wharton's premier student-run, India-centric business conference, and is the largest student-run conference in India. It brings together world leaders, professionals, academics and students from around the world to discuss India's evolution into a prominent global economic power.
The conference last year aimed to discuss the resilience shown by India during the global COVID pandemic, its quest to increase self-reliance in different business sectors, and what it will take to reignite the country's growth engine.
An exciting line-up of panel discussions, keynote speakers and fireside chats covered a variety of pertinent topics including the the global role of India pharmaceuticals, the interplay of public and private investments needed to sustain a thriving sports industry, and the role of Tech for Bharat.
Every year, WIEF features renowned speakers who are at the forefront of India’s economic and business growth. The forum receives extensive media coverage in India and in the wider business community. Recent forums have been covered by networks such as CNBC, Republic TV, NDTV, and Bloomberg, broadcast over TV and the internet, and covered by over 30 journalists and all major publications.
