What students talk about us?

Khanh G Nguyen majored in marketing, one of more than 190 academic programs at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Since earning his bachelor's degree in Spring 2020, Nguyen has worked at a marketing agency in Vietnam.The critical thinking skills he gained at UWM have helped him meet his clients’ needs.

“We don’t have that (type of learning) in Vietnam,” he said. “So when I went to America, especially at UWM, I learned a lot about critical thinking. We have to solve problems on a daily basis (at work) so critical thinking is the most important thing I learned at UWM.”
