The goal of the Wisconsin MBA Program is to see every student achieve his or her individual professional goals, which often include a summer internship and full-time employment.

A distinctive feature of the Wisconsin MBA Program is the high level of access you have to recruiting companies and other corporate partners. Our specialization model ensures you that you will make meaningful connections with Wisconsin School of Business alumni and other industry leaders who hire graduates in specific fields.

“We had multiple opportunities to engage with companies before they came on campus to interview. A few companies hosted us at their headquarters, some came to teach us in applied learning sessions, and all of them did information sessions. There is plenty of opportunity to really get to know each company and the people who work there. I played golf with the gentleman from SC Johnson who interviewed me, was part of a case competition judged by multiple interviewers from at least five different companies, and sat next to the CEO of WhiteWave during an advisory board dinner.”

“Alumni support for the program is outstanding. One of the program alums, Jim Swanke, teaches a sustainability and risk management course and works for the consulting company, Willis Towers Watson. I met with him for a mock interview, which led to an internship with his firm. Jim was such a supportive and encouraging advocate, advising me on which divisions would be best fits and connecting me with the right people. After graduation, I returned to Willis Towers Watson full-time.”
