More than 330 employers—including organizations of all sizes from a wide variety of industries—have supported students in the Wisconsin Executive MBA Program. These employers know that individuals who complete the program are prepared to step into leadership roles in their organizations. The expanded professional network that Wisconsin MBAs gain as participants in the program also benefits employers.

The relevance of the curriculum ensures that employers will benefit immediately from their investment in talent development. Students often become more valuable to their organizations from day one, because they bring back business concepts and best practices that are immediately applicable.

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