Note from Salomon Moussatche, WG’48

Salomon Moussatche, WG'48When I arrived to the Wharton campus at age 19, I was the first student ever admitted from Argentina. In my interview with Director Clyde Kahler, we were setting the core subjects I should take in order to graduate and when he mentioned “Advanced Economics” I reminded him that my main interest was business management and that I was already a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Buenos Aires. His reply was, “Oh, I didn’t realize that they grant doctoral degrees to teenagers.”
