Some students enroll as first-year UW–Madison students and apply to the Wisconsin School of Business in the spring of their first year. Students who follow this path use the pre-business admission process to apply to the Wisconsin BBA Program.
This path may be a good choice for students who wish to explore their options without committing to an undergraduate business degree.
If you choose this path, you will apply to UW-Madison when you are in high school, and then you’ll apply to the BBA Program in the spring semester of your first year (or as soon as you have met pre-business requirements).
