Welcome to the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  The Lubar School is a premier public business school known for high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs, exceptional faculty, outstanding students, and strong business partnerships.

I firmly believe that education leads to opportunity, and opportunity abounds at the Lubar School.  Our offerings include a comprehensive array of accredited academic programs including bachelor’s, master’s, Executive MBA, and doctoral degrees known for rigor and relevance.  Beyond the academic curriculum, experiential learning and enrichment activities help further shape our students’ futures, including business study abroad, professional and global internships, discussions with executives in the classroom and at special events, and an annual business plan competition.

As a major metropolitan business school, the Lubar School’s proximity to diverse industries, major companies, and budding entrepreneurial ventures translates to a host of internship and career opportunities for students.  We are located just minutes from the corporate headquarters of many prominent companies, including Johnson Controls, Northwestern Mutual, Manpower, Kohl’s, and Harley-Davidson.

The Lubar School’s relationships with business also enhance the intellectual capital of Lubar faculty.  Faculty members regularly collaborate with industry on executive development and management research, further distinguishing the Lubar reputation and bringing first-hand knowledge and insight back to students.

Whether you are a prospective student, a business professional looking to expand your career opportunities, an alum reconnecting with us, or a visitor interested in learning more about the Lubar School, I hope you enjoy your visit to our website!
