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

Located within one of the world's leading public research universities, the School is a vibrant community that honors our university's commitment to research and public service. We believe public research universities hold great untapped potential to address the world's most complex challenges.
