Why choose Wisconsin MBA?
Completing my undergraduate degree at UW–Madison, I have experienced the high level of education quality UW provides and helps its students develop the necessary skills to succeed out in the real world. Additionally, UW–Madison has a vast and powerful network that a Badger becomes a part of upon graduation. I am excited to further expand my Badger network within the realm of Business, giving me confidence that I will be able to advance my career quickly upon graduation. One last factor that played a part in my choosing of this program is that the unique online/in-person hybrid style program has allowed me to continue to work my full-time job during the program. This gives me the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills I learn from class directly to my current role the next day.

Take advantage of all of the career building resources the WSB has to offer outside of just class. Take advantage of career coaching, guest speakers, and even the library resources you will have access to as a Badger. These are great resources for career building knowledge that you will no longer have access to after graduation without paying an exorbitant amount of money to private consultants/memberships.

Fun fact:
I am a patent holder for a new fan technology I developed.
