Where did Ivanka Trump go to college?

Ivanka Trump is arguably the most well-known of Donald Trump's children. She's a former model. She's got her own line of clothing, handbags and footwear. She serves as Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization. And she's appeared on her father's hit show "The Apprentice" for years, as an adviser and boardroom judge.

How Ivanka Trump and her husband influence the 2016 race 03:03

Born in 1981, Ivanka is the second-oldest child of Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana. And tonight, she'll be taking the podium to introduce her father as he formally accepts the Republican nomination. That's a pretty prime spot. And she's received it because she comes across as both eloquent and well educated... a point which begs the question, where exactly did she receive her education?

Ivanka spent her first two college years at Georgetown University (her brother Eric's alma mater). In her junior year, however, she transferred to the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. She graduated from Wharton in 2004 with a degree in economics. It's something of a family tradition -- her father often brags about his Wharton degree, and Ivanka's older brother Donald Jr. and younger sister Tiffany went to college there, too.
