Wisconsin On-Campus Visit Options

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.

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. Please note that personalized visits will close on May 9th, 2014 but will resume in September 2014.

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
