Higher Education in Wisconsin

This week Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker declared the week of July 10th Private College Week. This week long celebration of the 24 private and non-profit schools across Wisconsin promotes the excellent educational opportunities available throughout the state.

To many, the most attractive element is that students enrolled in a private college or university can expect significantly smaller class sizes. According to the Wisconsin Private College’s page the average class size is around 16 students. In addition to smaller class sizes, these colleges and universities have some of the highest 4 year graduation rates. The majority of students graduating from Wisconsin private colleges and universities complete their studies with B.A. and M.A. degrees in high demand fields like business, engineering, nursing, and other healthcare fields.

These higher education institutions provide assistance that goes beyond their time as a student. Many schools report higher than average job placement within the first few months of graduation, offering on-campus career assistance and large job fairs.

Among the opportunities the EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa program offers, access to world class institutions at private and public universities alike is one that often stands out to investors. FirstPathway Partners understands the complexity of this process and is well equipped to help investors and their families with this important task.
