Founded in 1900, the Wisconsin School of Business established one of the first five business programs in the nation. That entrepreneurial spirit remains strong.

As members of the UW-Madison community, the Wisconsin School of Business is a vibrant community that honors our university's commitment to research and public service by inspiring, challenging, and supporting students. Our acclaimed knowledge centers combine thought leadership across a full spectrum of business scholarship. Here we create a forward-thinking curriculum and collaborate to solve real-world business challenges. Our students emerge industry-smart and best prepared to transform the world of business. 

We continue to build on our enduring values:

  • The continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found
  • Promoting lifelong learning for its own sake and as a service to the greater good
  • The accessibility of our educational experiences
  • Enhancing and embracing diversity
  • The Wisconsin Idea: improving people’s lives beyond the boundaries of the UW-Madison campus

Together–in partnership with our alumni and friends, campus, and global partners—we build upon a long tradition of innovation and excellence.

Together Forward.
