A degree in business is a learning opportunity that gives students tangible skills that can be applied in a range of professional environments, and across sectors. Wisconsin’s economy and employment opportunities are centered around its major sister cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, with industries like manufacturing and beverage distribution among the top employers locally.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics counts over 6,000 business and financial operations professionals employed in the state of Wisconsin that receive an annual mean wage of up to $80,000.
Working professionals typically need a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Safety, but can also complete master’s programs to specialize in fields like business development and financial management. It is often recommended that students apply for internships and fellowships during their undergraduate studies to further their work experience and chances of getting a job after they finish their degree. For students looking to enter the corporate world of business, both Johnson Controls and Kohls employ many business professionals locally.
