Our general management curriculum develops the quantitative, behavioral, and ethical foundations of management, taught by our world-class faculty. The integrated course structure is designed to address the fundamental issues that face cross-functional managers throughout their careers.

Collaboration and applied learning are critical features of the Wisconsin MBA. For each of the three years of the program, you will work as part of team. Your small group will feature a complementary mix of backgrounds and expertise. Most of our students have considerable work experience, and each student entering the program brings unique insight to the classroom. At the end of the second year, a required global learning experience provides students with the opportunity to gain critical insights on doing business overseas.
