As one of the founding faculty members for the University of Wisconsin MBA Consortium program, J. Ben Arbaugh is truly a pioneer in business education. His impact has been felt for more than two decades in the Consortium, at UW-Oshkosh, and beyond. In addition to recognition by professional colleagues in his field, Dr. Arbaugh is a two-time recipient of the UW MBA Consortium's Outstanding Faculty award, most recently being recognized in 2017. At the end of the semester, Dr. Arbaugh plans to retire.

Ben's cancer journey started as a simple case of hiccups while eating in November 2016. Over the next couple of months, symptoms progressively became more persistent, ending with several doctor visits. Eventually a scan revealed a three centimeter tumor at the bottom of his esophagus close to where it connects with the stomach. Ben was diagnosed with Stage III B Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. Although doctors were initially hopeful of his ability to beat the cancer, he has been recently removed from active treatment and is under hospice care at home.
True to Ben's fashion, he plans to try to finish out the semester as planned. On Thursday, May 3 at 6 p.m. (Central), Dr. Arbaugh will give a final lecture as he completes his 24 years of teaching and service at UW-Oshkosh and the UW MBA Consortium. Click here to watch the event live.
