Approximately half of our BBA students enter the Wisconsin School of Business through the pre-business process, applying in the spring of their first year for admission into the program beginning the following fall semester.
Applicants must apply prior to earning 86 credits, which includes in-progress, retro, transfer, and pre-enrollment coursework. Prerequisite courses in communications, calculus, economics, and psychology are also required.
We encourage you to review the complete BBA admissions policies.
