The Wisconsin MBA Program has long been committed to sustaining a diverse learning community. In fact, the University of Wisconsin–Madison was one of three founding members of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, a non-profit organization that has played a leading role in promoting diversity in education and business for more than 50 years.
The Consortium provides a diversity network linking top-tier students, MBA programs, and leading corporations, including Fortune 500 companies. Consortium students are connected to a vast and committed alumni network and more than 80 corporate partners representing top U.S. companies, such as General Mills, 3M, SC Johnson, Eli Lilly, and PepsiCo.
The organization’s mission is to increase the representation of African Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanic Americans in education and business. Historically, the 19 Consortium member schools have graduated more than 400 MBAs annually—approximately half of the under-represented MBAs entering the workforce.
Consortium Fellowships Provide Support
Eligible students may receive Consortium fellowships provided by the Wisconsin Full-Time MBA Program. These fellowships include, at a minimum, full tuition and fees for the duration of the MBA program. Additional benefits to participating students include mentoring and career management services offered through The Consortium.
If you are eligible and can demonstrate a commitment to The Consortium’s mission, we encourage you to apply to the Wisconsin MBA through The Consortium.
