Networking! at a cozy restaurant or bar in Tokyo is held once a quarter. This WCJ Networking! aims to provide a venue where younger alumni can meet and get to know experienced Wharton Alumni with a wealth of professional experience and wisdom, and discuss various subjects ranging from particular industries to career development thoughts and ideas in a casual setting. A number of "Senior" Wharton Alumni are participating in the events.

Annual General Meeting, Once a year we held AGM and around 100 alumni attend, On top of reporting club activities, we also locally celebrate class reunion for the corresponding year alumni.
Board room seminars (in Japanese). The series feature high-profile keynote speakers, moderators and panelists. By leveraging 1,200 networking in Japan, we have so far invited the world's top female car racer, the deputy governor of Bank of Japan, the 400m hurdle World Championship medalist, as well as senior business executives.
