Small class sizes means a low student-to-teacher ratio and more teacher/student interaction. You don’t need a master’s degree in business analytics to understand that. It also means you’ll have a closer relationship with an instructor dedicated to your success and willing to work with you to make sure that happens.
What good is the pay increase that often comes from a graduate degree if you only use it to pay off your student debt? The graduate school at UW-Whitewater is more affordable than most while maintaining the highest level of educational quality.
Whether you’re in Milwaukee, Madison, Chicago, or anywhere in between, UW-Whitewater is conveniently located. So, if your courses bring you to our lovely 400 acre campus, it won’t take you long to get here.
How Do I Apply?
It’s easy to assume that you could get lost in the process of application and be seen as just another number. And, at some institutions, that may be the case; but not at UW-Whitewater. Here, we work with you to make sure you are admitted and on your path to success quickly and easily. This is not an automated process. A living, breathing member of our staff will review your application to ensure the best fit.
