This review is for Madison

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2014

Experience during the program

Here are four somewhat disjointed thoughts on WSB for potential applicants:

WSB's greatest strength may just be its willingness to try. There was a significant emphasis on improvement and experimentation with students provide feedback and admins making further adjustments for the next classes.

The school has capacity for about 120 students per class but has been operating around 100 for several years. They are under compromising on perceived quality/readiness, but, like any program, do misjudge from time to time. With only ~99 classmates, WSB is not a program in which on can simply hide and go along for the ride.

If you're thinking about applying, think carefully about how closely you align with WSB on values (pretty broad as a public university).

Our financial outcomes are masked somewhat by the geography of our placement. $100k has more buying power in Minneapolis or Chicago than $120k in Boston or NYC.

About professors, classes and curriculum

Very strong faculty for core courses, Operations Research, Marketing, Strategy, Accounting, Negotiation, and perhaps more.

About job placement process

Remember: small program = smaller number of strong recruiting relationships. Check our recruiting companies list for higher likelihood employers against your desired firm or industry.
