The specialization model offered at the Wisconsin School of Business helps students stand out during internship recruitment. Having a level of specialization puts you one step ahead of students from more general MBA programs. When you’re networking at career fairs and can reference specific industries or jobs, you appear more confident and decisive, and that’s more impressive to employers overall.
