This match has ended.

At the Wisconsin School of Business, we believe every student should engage in immersive career exploration and real-world business environments outside the classroom. Experiential learning opportunities—like career treks, job shadows, and case competitions—help students find their path in business and equip them with skills for professional success. These experiences are highly impactful but financial barriers currently limit some Business Badgers’ ability to participate. That’s where alumni and friends like you come in.   

On Day of the Badger, your gift makes experiential learning possible for more students, allowing them to engage with business beyond the boundaries of the classroom. In addition to building valuable and transferable business skills, many of these opportunities also result in job offers and internships.  

Here’s how your gift makes experiential learning come to life: 

  • $250 sponsors a student’s participation in Business Badger Launch, an orientation program for first-generation and underrepresented students in business. 
  • $500 helps a group of students participate in job-shadow opportunities at companies like Deloitte, 3M, and PwC.  
  • $1,000 funds a student’s participation in a career trek to visit companies in Chicago, New York, Austin, and more. 
  • $1,500 supports a student’s participation in Leadership at Lambeau, WSB’s immersive leadership development program. 
  • $5,000 sponsors a student group’s participation in a national case competition. 

From orientation to job offer—your Day of the Badger gift of any amount helps our Business Badgers elevate their WSB education.
