Finding Your Fit
Job opportunities in supply chain management are plentiful, as supply chain is a critical focus and strategic advantage for companies large and small across all industries. Businesses focus on integrating marketing, sourcing, production, and logistics – not only within the firm, but also with suppliers, other business partners, and customers.
An Excellent Return on Investment: Supply Chain MBA Salaries
Wisconsin MBAs are highly sought by leading firms because they graduate with a portfolio of skills, experience, and specialized knowledge that allows them to hit the ground running from the first day on the job. As a graduate of the Wisconsin MBA, your preparation will distinguish you from graduates of other programs and give you an important edge in rapid career advancement. In addition, the affordable tuition coupled with some of the highest post-MBA salaries among peer programs, makes the Wisconsin MBA an excellent return on investment – and an obvious choice for MBA study. On average, post-MBA salaries for Grainger Center students range from $85,000 to $125,000, which represents an increase of 61 percent* from the average salary of our students when they begin the program.

Wisconsin MBA Career Development
Career development is a significant part of the Wisconsin MBA experience. Students receive individualized support and training from Grainger Center staff and from the MBA Career Management Center.
At the beginning of fall semester, students initiate a career development plan. New and returning students polish their resumes, develop tailored cover letters, and participate in mock interviews. All students have regularly scheduled career development meetings with the director to track progress and review action plans. In addition to this individualized guidance and the placement opportunities available via the business school’s MBA Career Management Center, students also conduct their own independent job and internship searches.
We focus on serving current MBA students in their internship and full-time job preparation and search. From one-to-one advising and group workshops, to course facilitation and online resources, the MBA Career Management Center strives to provide the preparation and resources to have each student achieve their post-MBA career goals.
