The Weinert Center is pleased to announce our new Fellowship class for the 2017-2018 academic year. This is our fifth class since the program began in fall 2014.
The Wisconsin Fellowship in Enterprise Development is an applied training program that integrates foundational business knowledge, award winning academic research, and cutting edge techniques from practice in a rigorous single year program.
Greg Forkins, an MBA student from the Center for Brand and Product Management, had this to say about the Fellowship program:
"I applied to the Fellowship in order to learn from both successful entrepreneurs and from my classmates who are also interested in entrepreneurship. I hope to gain not only the tools needed to establish my own business someday, but also those which will allow me to act like an entrepreneur within a larger company. The Fellowship will give me the opportunity to take the tools we learn in the classroom and apply them towards real business ideas. This hands-on experience is what I’m most looking forward to in the second year of my MBA program."
