Founded in 1995, the Wharton Cigar Club seeks to develop knowledge about and taste for cigars in a friendly atmosphere.

The world of cigars is as refined as that of wines or whiskeys. Club events, which are both educational and pleasurable, allow our members to learn more about cigars as well as to meet with fellow amateurs.

The Club operates under the umbrella of the Wharton Graduate Association (WGA). It is open to all members of the Wharton Community. MBA students may join via the WGA Store.
