Validating strategies and achieving operational excellence through the UWEBC's peer-to-peer learning among leading Wisconsin companies for 20 years.

Since 1998, the UWEBC has brought together executives, managers and senior practitioners from leading Wisconsin companies to learn from each other. Four Wisconsin governors have recognized the UWEBC as a model of university-industry collaboration advancing the competitiveness of Wisconsin business and the health of Wisconsin's economy.

We focus our efforts on five areas critical to a diverse range of businesses: Marketing, Information Technology, Human Resources, Supply Chain and Customer Service. Membership resources are open and available to executives and managers in all areas of your company. Below is a brief description of our four main offerings.
