Teaching Assistant Positions

The Finance Department each semester hires MBA students to work as teaching assistants for both the undergraduate and MBA courses.

Requirements: MBA Students must already have taken the course for which they will TA and should have received a DS. It is optimal to have your instructor recommend you to the instructor for whom you want to work as a TA.

Duties: Duties vary from course to course and from instructor to instructor. They may include holding office hours, conducting review sessions, reviewing cases and other class assignments, and grading exams. These duties should involve, on average, five to ten hours of work per week during the semester.

** NOTE: A student may TA for only ONE class per semester. Additional courses require academic advisor approval.

Procedure: Each instructor screens prospective teaching assistants. Contact the instructor or leave him/her a note expressing your interest. After you have come to an agreement with the instructor, contact Andrea Rollins (2411 SH-DH, 215-898-1263, rollins@wharton.upenn.edu) or Elizabeth Cummings (2407 SHDH, 215-898-4167, cumminge@wharton.upenn.edu), to complete forms and make payment arrangements.

TA payments will not be generated until all paperwork is processed.
