And Here’s What Our Graduates Have to Say…….

I decided to pursue my master’s degree to advance in my field and I chose the Lubar School of Business because of its reputation in the Milwaukee area. I wanted to learn more about areas like finance and accounting that I did not have access to in my current role. Shortly after graduation, I was promoted and was able to take on larger scale projects. I’d say my time and investment in the UWM MBA program was 100% worth it!

I knew an MBA would offer the opportunity for upward mobility in my career. The Lubar MBA program aligned with my goals and allowed me to complete the program on my own schedule. In addition, I specialized in business analytics and gained valuable data skills that I’m now applying in my work environment.
