The Wisconsin Evening MBA is a 30-month program delivered in a lock-step structure. Each entering cohort progresses through the entire three-year program of study together. This approach gives you a shared, team-based MBA experience with a core group of students from diverse professional backgrounds.

The general program format is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to advance their careers without interruption. Classes generally meet on Monday and Thursday evenings, and homework assignments are manageable, allowing you to stay on top of the other things in your life. The program also includes a 10-day, in-country global learning experience that is enhanced by class preparation prior to the trip and followed by a debrief session.

Focus on Learning, Not on Logistics

Every aspect of the program, down to the smallest detail, is designed to help you succeed. We build in a variety of amenities that add convenience and save you time, including parking, refreshments, transportation from metro Milwaukee, and more. In short, we do everything we can to make the program accessible so you can get the most out of your educational experience.

There’s no need to worry about searching for a parking spot on campus. Parking permits are provided to students for use on class nights. Parking is available in the underground ramp at Grainger Hall, home of the Wisconsin School of Business.

Badger Coaches


Transportation to and from campus is provided from the metro Milwaukee area. A luxury coach equipped with comfortable seating and small meeting tables serves locations in downtown Milwaukee and Brookfield. Students use the time on the coach to study, discuss class material, relax, and socialize.

Program staff will also facilitate introductions for students who are traveling some distance and wish to carpool to campus. The program draws students from the Fox Valley, the Illinois/Wisconsin border, and other locations.

Refreshments table


Food and beverages are available during the break at every class session. You won’t have to plan for dinner before class. Arrangements are made to accommodate special dietary needs.
