In times of uncertainty, making connections with others is more important than ever. That is why the Wisconsin School of Business is making it easier to broaden your network by connecting with alumni from around the globe right from your own home.

The Business Badger network is full of resilient, hard-working professionals, just like you. These small group video-chats will be open dialogue between alumni who share common interests. Come prepared with questions, advice, or topics you are interested in getting feedback on. WSB thought-leaders will be joining the conversation to share their advice and knowledge as well.

Space is extremely limited to allow for a robust conversation, so make sure to register today. If a chat fills up, we encourage you to join the waitlist. If you sign-up and are no longer able to attend, please let us know at alumni@wsb.wisc.edu so we are able to give someone else your spot.
