Alumni Testimonials

Rachel Greenbush

“The Wisconsin School of Business community has taught me that by dedicating yourself, demonstrating a tenacious work ethic, and being grateful for each opportunity you earn can lead to wonderful accomplishments. I am honored to have been a part of this program and am excited to continue to show my utmost support for Wisconsin as a Business Badger alumna!”

Rachel Greenberg (BBA ’20)

“An urge to help others drives my passion for making an impact on society because I understand the impact someone’s support can have. I am grateful for my mentors who helped me in my transformative journey from a remote village in India to the Wisconsin School of Business, which was nothing short of a miracle. Now as a Badger, I am even more eager to help others!”
