The Lubar College stands as Wisconsin’s sole public metropolitan business school, and this year, they landed at No. 91 in our 2023 rankings for the second year in a row. As for the three methodological categories, they placed No. 91 in all of them –  Career Outcomes, Admissions, and Academic Experience. 

Their acceptance rate for the most recent incoming class was 81%, which was more lenient than last year’s rate of 71%. 

The school reported that an incredible 99.02% of the Class of 2023 landed a full-time position within three months of graduating, yet they did not report their internship rates. 

Among the majors within the college available to undergraduate students are Human Resources Management, General Business, Information Technology Management, Finance, and Accounting.


Notably, through the generosity of alumni, faculty, and friends of the school, over $1,000,000 in merit- and need-based scholarship support was awarded to Lubar College of Business students in 2022-23. “Without the scholarship… I would have never known what it was like to be a UWM Panther,” one current student says. “Proud of my university and in love with the city of Milwaukee. I would have never had the chance to find a marketing internship, and be on the road to accomplishing my goals.”

What do future Business Panthers look like? The school describes them as “Motivated self-starters. Smart, hard workers. Job ready,” adding: “Choosing the right business school is one of the first steps you’ll take toward building your career. As a major metropolitan business school with great connections to industry, the Lubar College of Business will not only provide you with the opportunity to learn business — but the opportunity to experience business.

“There is so much to look forward to as a future Lubar Business Panther: great friends, business connections, clubs and business student organizations, internships, part-time work, and great support throughout your studies and academic life — from your freshman year through graduation.”
