Welcome MBA Class of 2013 by Graaskamp Center Staff
This week marks the kick-off of orientation activities for the incoming Class of 2013 MBA students in Real Estate and other specializations at the Wisconsin School of Business. We call this orientation period The Wisconsin MBA Experience.

The official beginning of a student’s career as a Wisconsin MBA student is the Wisconsin MBA Experience, an interactive pre-MBA program that takes place prior to the start of formal classes. Over the nine-day experience, students are introduced to the facilities, resources and technology available at the Wisconsin School of Business. They also get to know faculty advisors and fellow classmates, including those in the respective career specialization. Students gain a clear view of the expectations and demands of the Wisconsin MBA program, as well as its policies and procedures.

The 2011 Wisconsin MBA Experience is scheduled for August 17 – August 25 and is mandatory. Classes begin on Friday, September 2, 2011.
