The Business Connect Learning Community is designed for first-year direct-admits to the Wisconsin School of Business. Residents will explore leadership concepts in a supportive environment with fellow business majors who have similar interests and classes. Business Connect is located in Ogg Residence Hall, a popular building that is conveniently located near the School of Business.
In Business Connect, residents can be matched with student and alumni mentors and learn the ins and outs of the School, courses, and career development, get in-house access to programs, faculty, and academic, career, and study abroad advisors, and have the option to take their required Personal & Professional Foundations in Business course with fellow residents on site.
