The Wisconsin MBA in arts administration is this country's premier MBA program with a specialized educational focus that links arts and business practice. Every other year during the fall semester, we invite our alumni, guest presenters, practitioners, and students from across the country to the Bolz Center Collegium for continued learning on current topics and trends in and outside of the arts and nonprofit sectors.

It is this philosophy and approach that leads us to announce our exciting and timely Collegium topic for this year:
