Madison College students studying liberal arts or business management can have a direct path to completing a bachelor’s degree in business with UW–Madison Online, thanks to transfer agreements that guarantee admission into select Wisconsin School of Business online programs for students who meet requirements.

How it works

To be considered for enrollment in a UW–Madison Online business degree program, Madison College students must:

  • Earn an associate degree in liberal arts-economics and pre-business or in business management
  • Complete a declaration of intent with a Madison College advisor
  • Earn at least a 3.0 GPA and be in good academic standing at Madison College
  • Meet requirements for admission to UW–Madison

“The transfer experience from Madison College to UW–Madison was excellent. I hope that my academics will provide future opportunities to advance into a higher-level management or director role.”
