The Wisconsin School of Business offers two courses for nonbusiness majors. UW students interested in learning the basics about accounting and finance, or management and marketing, may enroll in either or both courses. 

The courses are offered thanks to the generous support of the Gary C. Wendt Fund for Business Instruction.
