Lubar, Chairman and Founder of Lubar & Co., Inc., who made a $10 million donation to the UWM Foundation in support of business student scholarships and faculty excellence. This was the largest gift ever to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The Lubar School offers a complete range of management degree programs, including the BBA (six majors), MBA (evening flexible and cohort formats), Executive MBA, MS in Management (five concentrations), MS in Information Technology Management, and PhD programs, as well as joint degree programs and specialized certificate programs.
