The School
The Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business is a major metropolitan business school with approximately 3,600 undergraduate students, 600 graduate students, 70 full-time faculty, and 40 professional staff. The School was created in 1966, ten years after the establishment of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus. In 2006, Information technology was renamed in recognition of distinguished business executive Sheldon B. Lubar, Chairman and Founder of Lubar & Co., Inc., who made the largest gift ever to the University, a $10 million donation in support of business student scholarships and faculty excellence. The School offers a complete range of management degree programs, including the BBA (six majors), MBA (part-time, including flexible, online, and cohort formats), Executive MBA, MS in Management (four concentrations), MS in Information Technology Management, PhD programs, as well as joint degree programs and specialized certificate programs. The School has been accredited by AACSB International since 1970 and earned supplemental AACSB accreditation for its accounting programs in 2016.
The University
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee was recently designated R-1 Doctoral University – Highest Research Activity by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Of the 115 universities designated as R-1, the University is among a minority located in an urban setting and one of only 10 with a dedicated urban access mission. As one of only two doctoral-granting institutions in the University of Wisconsin System, the University is Wisconsin’s premier urban research institution with a more diverse student body than any other UW-System school. The University is Wisconsin’s only public urban research university and has an established international reputation for excellence in research, community engagement, teaching, and entrepreneurism. Founded over 60 years ago in the belief that Milwaukee would need a great public university to become a great city, the themes of quality education, excellence in research, and community service guide all University activities. The University’s 193 degree programs include 93 undergraduate degrees, 64 masters’ degrees, and 36 doctoral programs across 14 schools and colleges. With a budget of $667 million, the University educates more than 25,000 students and is an engine for innovation in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Setting
The 104-acre main campus is located within a beautiful residential neighborhood on Milwaukee’s east side and features 75 buildings totaling over 8 million gross square feet. An aggressive building program over the past decade provided new facilities including the Kenwood Interdisciplinary Research Complex, Kenilworth Square, and Cambridge Commons to support strong academic programs in business, architecture, performing arts, and the sciences, as well as student housing and athletics. The campus is a short walk from Lake Michigan, near numerous historic areas, and is located only three miles from downtown Milwaukee. Nestled on the coast of Lake Michigan and only 90 minutes from Chicago, Milwaukee is a vibrant city buzzing with growth. The largest city in Wisconsin and ranked seventh in the top 10 most exciting cities in America, Milwaukee boasts a beautiful lakefront, unique neighborhoods, and many exceptional restaurants.
