The Wisconsin School of Business is deeply committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive learning community. This creates an enriching experience for students, faculty, and alumni, providing many opportunities to experience different perspectives and learn from each other.

The School was one of the first in the nation to recognize the business case for diversity in MBA education. The University of Wisconsin–Madison was one of three founding members of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a non-profit organization founded in 1956 to promote diversity in education and business.

The global nature of our community—which brings together students, faculty, staff, and alumni from around the world—encourages students to develop cultural competence and prepares them for success in the world economy.

Collaboration and social connections with others are an integral part of the Wisconsin Evening MBA experience. By sustaining a diverse learning community, we make that experience as valuable and engaging as possible.

A Commitment to Inclusion

Inclusion is a value that is fostered across the entire learning community at the Wisconsin School of Business. To help extend the culture of inclusion to all, the School schedules academic and co-curricular activities for students, as well as regular workshops for faculty and staff. As a community, we learn together to challenge our assumptions and expand our world view.

“Diversity is very much a lived value in our School. Through ongoing cultural competence programming, we invest in our students, faculty, and staff to grow personally and professionally by becoming more aware of their own value systems and biases, and to learn to appreciate others’ experiences that are different from their own. These skills are integral to leadership and professional success.”
