Total Impact Portfolio Challenge

Aspiring wealth managers and investment advisors: build on classroom fundamentals and learn more about impact investing.

Launched in 2018 by Wharton Social Impact and Good Capital Project, Total Impact Portfolio Challenge is an annual competition to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and experience to design and execute investment portfolios that maximize impact across asset classes.

As a Challenge participant, you’ll work with your team of fellow Wharton MBA students to construct an ideal portfolio for your impact-conscious investor—and compete for the opportunity to pitch your presentation to industry professionals.

“Doing the Total Impact Portfolio Challenge has been an awesome experience. You actually get a chance to take a practitioner’s view as a student, and be able to apply the skills you’re learning, build upon them, and also consider relevant questions in the industry as a growing professional. This was really a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to do that.”
