Master of business administration

Our MBA Program is recognized for highest standard of achievement and rigor with accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. You can typically complete our flexible MBA program in one and a half to two years. Also, it is important to note that the UW-Parkside MBA program is acknowledged as one of the most affordable AACSB accredited graduate business programs in the United States.

We are strategically located in the Chicago-Milwaukee corridor. Our alumni contribute significantly to the Wisconsin economy primarily in Racine and Kenosha counties, yet their influence extends throughout the Midwest region as well as across the country. Our accreditation, affordability, and strategic location combine to make choosing UW-Parkside's MBA program a sound, logical decision.

In addition to a regional focus, UW-Parkside has entered into an increasing number of exchange agreements with universities in countries around the world including China, India, Germany, Finland, Italy, Australia, France, and Russia helping to internationalize our classrooms and generate increasing global exposure. Thus, there are opportunities to study abroad in many countries, and also connect with international students and experts on campus. This is very important in the interconnected world of business, and equips our MBA alumni with experiences, global awareness, knowledge, and skills valued by many employers.
