Why choose Wisconsin MBA?
Many factors came together. Quality and reputation of the program are strong, with the university overall touting an impressive number of executive alumni. Additionally, a hybrid approach made practical sense with work and family commitments, especially with a son in elementary school. The program strikes the right balance.

Make the most of opportunities to visit the campus and School of Business, particularly if you’re new to Madison. The city provides a remarkable setting for a university experience. Give yourself enough time to build your application, avoiding deadline pressure. Pursuing graduate studies alongside professional work offers a meaningful learning experience, allowing you to draw connections between theory and practice and immediately apply your learnings to your work.

Fun fact:
I’ve been a lifelong student of music, and I continue to actively study piano. Many years ago as an Engineering undergrad at UW, I played piano for the UW Jazz Big Band.
