University of Wisconsin - Online Degrees in Sustainability

As part of our ongoing effort to identify, evaluate and publicize online degree programs in sustainability, today we will be looking at the University of Wisconsin. Our information comes from a variety of sources, but all evaluations and opinions are our own.

School

The University of Wisconsin is, perhaps, the most visible and most prestigious of the land grant colleges. With their flagship campus, the University of Wisconsin at Madison, the system comprises dozens of colleges scattered throughout the state and more recently, the internet. The system enrolls more than 180k students and employs more than 32k faculty and staff and includes two doctoral research universities, eleven comprehensive universities, thirteen freshman-sophomore colleges and the statewide University of Wisconsin-Extension, through which their degree and certificate programs  in sustainability are run.

Degree Programs


  • Bachelors (21 courses, 63 credits)
  • Certificate Programs
  • Masters (14 courses)

Descriptions

The Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Management is a fully accredited bachelor degree completion program. The program was approved by the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents,[2] and is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.[3] The curriculum was developed in cooperation with companies that are leading the way in sustainability, including Johnson Controls, Ford Motor Company, Eastman Kodak, Quad Graphics, FedEx, SC Johnson, Kohl’s Department Stores, Veolia Environmental Services, and Modine Manufacturing.[4] UW–Extension also worked with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and other government agencies, along with faculty from the four UW campuses, to build the curriculum.[5]

From the Website

"It’s no secret our world and business environments are always changing. More than ever, sustainability is key to giving you a competitive edge in today’s economy—financially, environmentally, and socially. For this reason, the University of Wisconsin Sustainable Management programs are thoughtfully designed with input from twenty-first-century businesses across the United States. Curriculum is hands-on. Real-world problems are faced head-on. And you learn to develop triple bottom line businesses that balance profitability with the needs of the environment and the wider communities in which we live."
