Attendance Expectations

Expand All
  • Do all classes have to be attended in person?

    You are expected to attend all classes. Of course, occasional absences due to illness, unexpected occurrences, or major life events are accommodated. In cases where numerous absences are simply unavoidable, program staff will work with you to determine whether withdrawal from the program is in your best interest.

  • Is participation in the global learning experience required?

    All students are expected to participate in the global learning experience, which features a 10-day trip to a destination abroad. Any students with serious concerns about fulfilling the global learning experience requirement should notify the director of Academic Resources and Student Affairs as early as possible.

  • My job requires that I travel for business. Will the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program be a good fit for me?

    If your current position requires travel, the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program may still work for you. Students are generally successful in the program under the following conditions:

    • They can set their own travel schedule.
    • They can complete all travel between Monday after class and Thursday before class.
    • They are able to participate in group or team projects while they are traveling.
    • They have a commitment from their employer that travel obligations will not increase while the student is attending the Evening MBA Program.

    Please view the detailed academic calendar to assess whether your work travel and other commitments will allow you to attend all required classes, orientation, and the international trip.

    Students who travel frequently for business or have other concerns about attendance are encouraged to contact the admissions staff to evaluate their situation.

  • Does the Wisconsin Evening MBA Program offer online or remote classes?

    The program does not offer online or remote classes. In order to enhance the experience of learning as a cohort and part of an engaged community, all classes are held at Grainger Hall, home of the Wisconsin School of Business, on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus.
