From food and drink to hobbies and entertainment, the UW-Madison community is full of alumni across the globe working in exciting industries. Join the Wisconsin School of Business for The Business of… a new virtual event series that gives you a sneak peek at the business side of your favorite things.

The Business of Chocolate

Tune in on May 19 for The Business of Chocolate to go behind the scenes of what it’s like to work in the chocolate industry. During the event you'll hear from a Master Chocolatier crafting artisan confections, and the CEO of a sustainability-directed chocolate company sold in grocers near you. Our alumni panelists will share the passion they have for their work, changes affecting their industry, and most importantly, how not to eat all of the delicious products.
