You can make the most of your time in the Wisconsin Executive MBA Program by participating fully in student life. The program invites you to take full advantage of the shared experiences that take place outside of the classroom.

In our collaborative, supportive learning community, students have been known to create networking opportunities for themselves. One example is the thriving Healthcare Interest Group, which brings together healthcare professionals from two Executive MBA cohorts to exchange ideas and apply their new knowledge to industry challenges.

Camaraderie beyond the Classroom

Executive MBA students who travel some distance often stay in Madison on Friday nights to work on team projects with their classmates or prepare for the next day’s class. These students—along with their Madison-based classmates—get together on Friday nights at the Memorial Union Terrace, Smitty’s Study Pub in the Fluno Center, or other Madison attractions.

You may also take a leadership role at the Wisconsin School of Business by serving on the student advisory board. Representatives of each Executive MBA class meet with program administrators on a regular basis to share ideas, initiatives, and student needs. Serving on the student advisory board helps you build connections with other Executive MBA students as you solicit their feedback and represent them.

Executive MBA students are also welcome to participate in a variety of student organizations that bring graduate students in business together to network, explore shared interests, and develop as professionals.

Your level of involvement in student life is your choice. These activities are available to you if you’d like to step away from your work life, build your network, and strengthen your connections to other Business Badgers once you graduate.
