The Wisconsin Evening MBA Program meets for three academic years. It is designed for busy professionals, meeting two nights a week, making coursework available via tablets, and having students work collaboratively in groups to manage the workload. Each cohort enters the program, progresses through the curriculum, and graduates together.

Considerations for Professionals Who Travel

If your current professional position requires travel, the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program may still work for you. Students are generally successful in the program if they can set their own travel schedule, complete all travel between Monday after class and Thursday before class, and participate in group or team projects while they are traveling. It is also advisable to get a commitment from one’s employer that travel obligations will not increase while the student is attending the Evening MBA Program.

Students who travel frequently for business are encouraged to contact the admissions staff to discuss questions and concerns.

Attendance Expectations

Due to the lockstep cohort format of the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program, attendance at all classes is required. Students are also expected to participate in the global learning experience, which features a 10-day, in-country trip. Details about our attendance policies can be found in the Program FAQs.

If you have concerns about your ability to attend all classes or fulfill the requirements of the global learning experience, we encourage you to contact a member of the program staff to discuss your situation.
