Admissions Process for School of Business:

The Wisconsin BBA is a Sophomore Admissions program.  Most students are admitted to the University as Pre-Business majors and complete a one-year preparatory curriculum. So, becoming a Business major actually consists of two admission processes: first to the university, then to the Wisconsin School of Business itself.

In the spring semester of their first year, students become eligible for admission to the business school. Successful applicants become Business majors the following fall. Approximately 60 percent of students who apply are accepted. Student are allowed to apply during the Spring semester of their junior year so long as they have not exceeded 100 credits at the time of applying. The application consists of a resume and personal statement. 

Each year, though, the Wisconsin School of Business does admit a select group of incoming first-year students as Business majors. This is an invitation-only process known as the Wisconsin BBA Direct Admit Program.

Please visit http://bus.wisc.edu/bba/admissions/apply to see more information about applying to the Wisconsin School of Business undergraduate program. If you have any questions regarding the admission process, please email admissions@bus.wisc.edu.

The Business Undergraduate Academic Services office hosts drop-in advising at the beginning of the fall term and can advise pre-business students on the necessary requirements for applying to the BBA program.
