Admission to the Wisconsin School of Business Ph.D. program requires a separate application than that used by the Graduate School of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

All applicants must follow the directions for application on this website and complete the Wisconsin School of Business online application. Instructions and deadlines for Wisconsin School of Business applicants are different than the Graduate School application, so be sure to follow only links from this website.

Note: Applicants who are currently enrolled in graduate degree programs within the University of Wisconsin-Madison are still required to complete the online application for the Wisconsin School of Business, although the $75 application fee (plus an additional $6 processing fee for international applicants) will be waived since it was already paid for as part of the prior application. Please contact the Ph.D. coordinator for more information.

Applications for fall admission (the only date of entry permitted for Ph.D. programs in the Wisconsin School of Business) are considered on a rolling basis. Click here for deadlines.

Underrepresented minority students are encouraged to review information on the Ph.D. Project and to participate in the Ph.D. Project Conference held in November each year. We also have a roster of other pre-application resources available.
