Still want to ignite a spark for UWM? Give here!
Sheldon B. Lubar College of Business

Leading Through Analytics & Innovation

As decision makers and business professionals know, great ideas are increasingly driven by innovative thinking and data analytics.

At the Lubar College of Business, everything we do is infused with this mindset – in the classroom, in the cutting-edge research of our talented faculty and in our partnerships with organizations around the region. 

Today, we are equipping our students with the skills and knowledge to become data-driven critical and creative thinkers.

Here is just some of what we are doing to ensure that our graduates are ready for the new economy:

  • Design thinking – Modules are now embedded into the BBA and MBA core curriculum.
  • Citizen Data Science Badge – Students can earn this “add-on” certification through course-embedded Tableau exercises that require them to analyze a dataset, produce visualizations/ dashboards and communicate the “story” that emerges from the data. 
  • Ignite Startup Incubator – A new startup accelerator launched in Fall 2022, complementing our undergraduate and graduate certificates in Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneur Internship Program, La Macchia New Venture Business Plan Competition, Scheinfeld Entrepreneurial Awards Program and Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization.
  • Online MBA and Online BBA-General Business – We’re meeting the needs of today’s learners by adding 100% online options for these key programs.
  • Focus on Student Success and Career Preparation – The 2nd floor of Lubar Hall has become a “destination” location for Lubar students, with a new tutoring center, student lounge, individual and group study rooms, remodeled career center and academic advising offices – all focused on helping our students succeed.
