An advisory board of alumni and other industry leaders contributes to shaping the arts administration curriculum and supports your career development. Advisory board members organize regular opportunities for networking in the arts community, recruit Wisconsin MBA students, and participate in our annual spring career management seminar. In addition to assisting with mock interviews and professional development workshops, they help arrange site visits with influential alumni across the nation. The advisory board meets on campus three times a year, providing many opportunities for board members to engage in meaningful mentorship with students. Our network of influential leaders in the arts community will enhance your MBA experience and provide connections for a lifetime.

“My time as a student in the Bolz Center was transformational. Ever since then, the Bolz Center has been a part of who I am. While my career has led me down a path outside of the arts, the things I learned through the Bolz Center have stayed with me and help me every day. It is an honor and a privilege to serve an organization that has provided so much to me. I hope others will consider sharing their time and talents with the Bolz Center as we begin our next 50 years.”
