Wisconsin School of Business will offer a portfolio of programs including our strong undergraduate, existing and innovative specialized master’s and we will continue to offer our current evening and executive MBA and consider new forms of MBA education that increase accessibility, flexibility and are responsive to the changing needs of students and employers.

Great choice. They are listening to local employers.

I guess that may be the fate of many in this tier of business school: ranked in the FT but not high enough to target the best national / regional recruiters. For this type of school, focusing on specialized master's programs is probably the better option.

Well, if it happens it won't happen soon:

We have heard from our community of students, alumni, and friends; therefore, we are going to stop further discussion of the one-year suspension of the full-time MBA. We moved too quickly without the broad consultation and discussion that our stakeholders can and should expect.

We will move forward with discussions on how to grow the undergraduate program and expand the graduate portfolio while simultaneously strengthening the full-time MBA experience. We will be inviting members of our community to help guide those discussions and be part of our efforts.

Not sure about that. I'm sure that their MBA is becoming (or will soon become) a loss leader.
