Wisconsin On-Campus VisitIcon of Grainger Hall

Wisconsin MBA Personalized Campus Visit

Is the Wisconsin MBA the right fit for you? Prospective students are encouraged to request a visit and come to Madison to experience firsthand what it is like to be a part of the Wisconsin MBA. When requesting a campus visit, we ask that you submit your résumé and any other pertinent information (i.e. GMAT score, undergraduate GPA, specialization of interest) to assist us in determining what kind of visit would best suit your needs.

Please note that starting April 24 campus visits are closed and will resume September 14, 2015 

In order to have time to put together a comprehensive visit schedule for you, we ask that you request your visit at least two weeks in advance.

Because Wisconsin MBA classes are not held during the summer, we suggest you plan a campus visit between September and April. Your scheduled visit during the school year may include:

  • A tour with a Wisconsin MBA student ambassador
  • The opportunity to attend a Wisconsin MBA class with a Wisconsin MBA student
  • An informal meeting with a representative in your desired career specialization
  • An informational meeting or admissions interview with an admissions representative
