Experience the Wisconsin Difference

Elsa Jacobson
“My career coach has helped me reflect on what I’m learning in class and apply it in my own leadership role. With a talented coach not affiliated with my own organization, I can share freely with her and can use her outside vantage point to make better decisions in my work and career.”
Elsa Jacobson (MBA ’20)
Senior Director at UW Health
Chris Feuille
“Learning what my strengths and weaknesses are, and doing the human synergistics and the 360 assessments and follow-up coaching have been some of the most impactful, instant put-into-motions tools that I’ve taken away. That’s been really beneficial.”
Chris Feuille (MBA ’22)
Vice President at Tribe-9 Foods
Pamela Petz
“Our 360 evaluation provided me with feedback on how I can immediately make changes to my management style and improve my team at work. The program’s career services staff is also available to continue the coaching based on this evaluation. I was hungry for this type of uncensored feedback and can already tell it’s improved my team dynamic.”
Pamela Petz (MBA ’18)
General Manager at Great Wolf Lodge
