More than 330 employers—including organizations of all sizes from a wide variety of industries—have supported students in the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program. These employers know that individuals who complete the program are equipped to help lead their organizations in the future. Employers also benefit from the expanded professional networks that Wisconsin MBAs bring to their roles.

The relevance of the curriculum ensures that employers will benefit immediately from their investment in talent development. Students gain business concepts and best practices that can be applied to business problems on day one.

Employer support may be in the form of financial sponsorship, limited work travel, and/or time off to take advantage of the opportunities that take place outside of regular class hours. In providing this support, companies and organizations demonstrate their confidence that a general management MBA from the Wisconsin School of Business offers a strong return on learning.
