Camaraderie and Community Enhance Student Life

The collaborative, engaged community you will find at the Wisconsin School of Business makes for a rich MBA experience outside of the classroom. Students typically form strong friendships based not only on common interests, but also on shared experiences.

The community-building begins with the Wisconsin MBA Experience, a week-long orientation program for entering students. This provides an early opportunity to get to know your classmates as you participate in team-building exercises and social events.

The Wisconsin MBA Experience sharpens your skills in important areas such as business communication, strategy, and teamwork. Optional sessions on mathematics are available to those who wish to strengthen their quantitative skills. The benefits of this experience also go beyond the academic, as you are welcomed into the friendly, challenging, and cooperative community at the Wisconsin School of Business.

A majority of Wisconsin MBA students participate in at least one student organization during their years here. Student organizations and other extracurricular activities allow you to be as active in this community as you’d like. 

Build a Lasting Network

The lifelong network you will form will be an asset throughout your career. The varied work experiences your fellow MBA students bring to the program will expose you to different industries and broaden your perspective.

Alumni of the Wisconsin School of Business are extraordinarily supportive of each other and the School. When you graduate, you join a worldwide network of proud Business Badgers who readily call upon each other for new ideas, shared opportunities, and employment connections.
