The School of Business provides a wide range of undergraduate business degree programs, from the Associate of Science in Business Administration to our diverse bachelor of business administration degrees, to meet our students’ and employer-partners’ needs. These undergraduate programs are focused on three core principles: flexibility, access, and engagement.

Flexibility: Many of our programs are offered in multiple formats so that students can balance their academic studies with the many competing demands on their time, as they earn a business degree.

Access: We see value in building students’ business competence from day one, which is part of what sets us apart as a top business school in Wisconsin. You will start taking business coursework in your first semester rather than starting in your junior year like other institutions require. This shortens your time-to-degree and allows you to earn additional credentials along the way.

Engagement: We recognize that classroom learning is only part of the equation. As a student of UW-Platteville’s School of Business, you’ll be able to join and ultimately assume a leadership role in one of our student organizations. The organizations provide additional opportunities to connect with employers, apply learning to real projects with real companies, and receive additional mentorship from the faculty, making UW-Platteville a smart investment for earning a business degree in Wisconsin.


Graduate programs within the School of Business emphasize a precise blend of technical and leadership skill development, allowing our graduates to advance in their organizations or serve as subject matter experts in their discipline. Many of our alumni present at regional, national, and international conferences on a regular basis. Faculty for the graduate programs are carefully chosen based on their combination of academic credentials and professional experiences, ensuring that you are learning from people who understand both the theory and practice as it occurs in organizations.

Each program is designed for working professionals and offers all business classes online. Our history as a leader in distance education sets us apart from a typical business university. With our first distance course offerings in the 1960s and our first online offerings in the 1990s, UW-Platteville enjoys a history of excellence in the field of distance learning and is proud to be among the best business schools in Wisconsin.
