The Wisconsin School of Business MBA: What You Need To Know

Wisconsin is a hidden gem of a business school that annually enrolls 80-100 full-time MBAs each year. The small, intimate nature of the program, the applied projects handed to students, and the emphasis on putting students through specialized areas of study make these MBAs well-prepared for their careers in business.

Applied learning is a cornerstone of the Wisconsin MBA program’s curriculum, and “collaboration over competition” is highly valued. Throughout the first semester, students are assigned to work within cross-functional and diverse teams.

In their first semester, the general business core delivers an integrated perspective on key functional areas of business.

The second semester addresses fundamental management principles, stressing the application of these principles to functional areas. Core courses are taken as a cohort to develop camaraderie and teamwork among students. The first year also includes at least three courses in students’ career specialization.

The specialized preparation that begins during the first year of the program is the primary focus the second year. In order to thoroughly grasp all aspects of a chosen specialization, students take up to eight classes in 10 different specialized areas that range from arts administration and brand & product management to real estate and supply chain management.

To apply, prospective students must submit materials such as GRE/GMAT, their resume, professional recommendations, attend an interview, and answer optional essay questions which gives students an opportunity to share their experiences and allows the committee to get to know students on a personal level.

As for co-curricular opportunities, when they aren’t studying many students are dedicated to cheering on their Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium, with Wisconsin ranking #1 for best college football towns by Sports Illustrated in 2019.
For those looking to work locally after graduating, many end up working for a number of global companies and successful tech start-ups, including American Family Insurance, Epic, Land’s End, Exact Science, and American Girl.
