College of Business and Economics

Learn More

A master's degree from the UW-Whitewater College of Business and Economics can help you reach your personal and professional goals, whether you want to:

  • Advance in your current organization or industry,
  • Lead a department or company in healthcare, engineering or other technical field,
  • Keep pace with change or continue as a lifelong learner,
  • Run a successful business, or
  • Revitalize your career or take on a completely new challenge.

Exceptional quality

UW-Whitewater's College of Business and Economics is the largest business school in Wisconsin accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business ( AACSB). The college was also the first regional comprehensive university in the UW System to achieve separate AACSB accreditation for accounting. Less than two percent of business schools worldwide can boast both credentials, which are marks of quality acknowledged by employers and other higher education institutions. AACSB accreditation ensures you will benefit from rigorous, relevant curriculum taught by highly qualified, full-time Ph.D. faculty. 


To ensure you can balance a graduate education with family, career and other responsibilities, the College of Business and Economics has developed flexible, customizable master's degree programs. Depending on the program, classes are available online, at our Whitewater campus, and a corporate campus in Madison, Wisconsin. You may complete programs on a part-time or full-time basis, and if needed, can pause your studies to fulfill other responsibilities and re-enter the program when ready.

Superior value

Most of our master's degrees cost less than $25,000, and we offer one of the most affordable AACSB-accredited MBAs in the region. The flat-rate tuition for online graduate programs is the same for all students — no matter if students are out-of-state, international, or from Wisconsin.
