Wisconsin MBA Personalized Campus Visit

Is the Wisconsin MBA the right fit for you? Prospective students are encouraged to come to Madison and experience firsthand what it's 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. 

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

Because Wisconsin MBA classes are not held during the summer, we suggest you plan a campus visit between September and April. Please note that starting April 24, 2105, comprehensive campus visits including interactions with current students and opportunities to visit a Wisconsin MBA class are not available. We encourage you to still schedule a campus visit during this time to meet with our admissions team and have a tour of Grainger Hall. Comprehensive campus visit will resume September 14, 2015.
