With 4,600 students enrolled, the University of Wisconsin—Whitewater’s College of Business and Economics (CoBE) is more than just a place to study business—it is a well-connected network and a thriving community. As Wisconsin’s largest business school, CoBE is proudly AACSB-accredited, comprehensive, and affordable.
A strong focus on applied learning means students are actively engaged with internships and activities such as national student competitions. This holds true across all of the business school’s programs, ranging from undergraduate majors to the AACSB-accredited Doctorate of Business Administration (DBA) (one of six of its kind in the US). A strong alumni network further exposes CoBE students to opportunities both before and after graduation.
International students interested in shorter programs may be attracted to the certificates or online programs. “We have basically every business program you could want here,” noted Dean John Chenoweth. More unique options include the online Master’s of Science in Environmental Safety and Health program, as well as MBA specializations in Supply Chain Management or Data Analytics, among many others.
Business students participate in projects with major companies such as the Miller Brewing Company and Harley Davidson through many forms of applied and experiential learning opportunities. The university’s DECA team (a prominent national business organization) recently won 25 awards and placed several students in the top 10 internationally at the 2016 International Career Development Conference. Also this year, the school’s American Marketing Association (AMA) Chapter
won the International Chapter of the Year Award for a fifth consecutive year at the International Collegiate Conference.
Whitewater offers a safe, small-town college experience with easy access to the nearby major cities of Chicago and Milwaukee. The university is located in a naturally scenic and rural area, but student life on the 400-acre university campus is regularly packed with exciting sports, music, and cultural activities.
International students are welcome to join one of the 170 student-run clubs and organizations (including 28 at the business school) or the university’s thriving Greek community. For those looking for a truly American college experience, opportunities abound at UW—Whitewater.
The College of Business and Economics hopes to extend this thriving network to Latin American partners interested in student exchange agreements. UW—Whitewater encourages students to study abroad and strives to bring international perspectives into the classroom. “We want to increase the international experience of all our students,” stated Mr. Chenoweth.
