In the Wisconsin MBA Program, students from under-represented populations will find camaraderie, support, and opportunities to make an impact both in and outside the classroom. The Wisconsin School of Business fosters an environment where all students are encouraged to contribute their unique perspectives and pursue their career goals in collaboration with others.
The Wisconsin MBA Program was one of the first to recognize the business case for diversity. 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 promoted 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. Historically, the 19 Consortium member schools have graduated more than 400 MBAs annually—approximately half of the under-represented MBAs entering the workforce.
Through our membership in The Consortium, students of color at the Wisconsin School of Business have numerous opportunities to position themselves for leadership, connect with employers, and network with influential leaders. Wisconsin MBA graduates also develop a lifelong network of supportive peers, alumni, advisory board members, and other industry leaders through curricular and co-curricular activities at the Wisconsin School of Business.
