Kohler MBA Program

Kohler Cohort 

Marquette University is offering its same high quality, nationally ranked MBA Program in Kohler, WI. We recruit a new cohort every two to three years depending on demand.  The last cohort started Fall 2018.

Kohler MBA Student

A unique program, offered in conjunction with the Kohler Company, but not limited to Kohler employees. Qualified candidates from all corporations are welcome! This is a lock-step, cohort program, beginning in Fall semesters and completing the Marquette University MBA degree in 28 months.

The courses are delivered in a blended format. That means that students will do more learning with the use of technology but still have significant face to face class time.

The Kohler MBA program has a schedule that works for busy professionals, and it gives you the Marquette advantage. Classes meet in Kohler one night per week typically 5:30 to 9:00 pm. The rest of the work takes place online, on your schedule. It's flexible and challenging, and it gives you all the value and competitive edge of a Marquette degree.

Kohler is conveniently situated less than a mile west of Interstate 43 in east-central Wisconsin. Kohler is located one hour north of Milwaukee (60 miles), one hour south of Green Bay (60 miles) and two hours north of Chicago (140 miles).
