Admissions Process for School of Business:

The Wisconsin BBA is a limited enrollment program. Students either enter through the prebusinessprocess (on-campus students) or through the direct admit process (high school ortransfer students from a UW-System school or Wisconsin technical college).

Students applying through the pre-business process will need to take the four pre-businesscourses and submit a resume and essay as part of their application. The application opens in thespring semester; students who are in the process of completing all requirements that semester areeligible to apply, provided they have earned fewer than 86 credits. Successful applicants becomeBusiness majors the following fall. The acceptance rate varies per year based on that admissioncycle. 

Students applying through the direct admit process will need to apply to UW-Madison as anentering first-year student, and select business as their primary or secondary interest. Effective Fall 2017, students will only need to complete a UW-Madison application, and will not berequired to submit a separate Wisconsin BBA Program application. The UW Office ofAdmissions will review applications for admission into both the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BBA Program. Additionally, the UW Office of Admissions and the BBAProgram administration will collaborate in the criteria reviewed for BBA direct admit applicants. 

Applicants will be notified the same day about the status of their admissions to both UW Madison and the BBA Program.

Finally, transfer students who are currently enrolled in one of the University of WisconsinSystem schools, or in a Wisconsin Technical College System school, may be eligible to apply fordirect transfer admission to the Wisconsin BBA Program. Students may apply for direct transferadmission into the BBA program at the same time they apply for admission to UW-Madison ifthey are transferring from a UW-System school (both two and four year) or one of the WisconsinTechnical Colleges and are in the process of completing the four pre-business courses. Studentsnot enrolled at a UW-System School or a Wisconsin Technical college are not eligible for directtransfer admission and must complete 12 credits in residence at UW-Madison before applying tothe BBA program in the spring semester. Students will have two opportunities to apply to theBBA program as long as fewer than 86 credits are earned. Admission decisions are based on thecompletion of pre-business courses, cumulative GPA, resume and essay. Admission iscompetitive due to enrollment limitations. Students will be notified of their acceptance in earlysummer.
