Staff: Ilene Ford

Assistant to the Directors/Operations Manager

Ilene works closely with the Executive Director and Directors, as well as with Fels instructors, students, staff members, applicants, and other members of the Penn community. She has been at Fels for more than 6 years and is involved with all aspects of the program. Applicants, current students, university staff and anyone reaching out to Fels for the first time should feel free to get in touch with Ilene; she's a great starting point for any question you may have. Be assured that no question is too complex or too trivial; she's heard them all and will be happy to help.

Before coming to Fels, Ilene studied at Penn and spent more than ten years in Admissions at the Wharton MBA program. Be sure to stop in her well-stocked office when you visit Fels where you'll find M&Ms, a comfortable chair, and a hug if you need one!
