Manufacturing is Wisconsin's most important industry, accounting for about 20% of the gross domestic product of the state

Manufacturing is Wisconsin's most important industry, accounting for about 20% of the gross domestic product of the state. Notable employers in this sector include Kohler Company, Rockwell Automation, Johnson Controls, and Hudson-Sharp Machine Company. Earning a degree from Wisconsin online colleges and universities in manufacturing management or manufacturing engineering can give you an edge when applying for a job in the manufacturing industry, though it's not a guarantee.

The state is also a leading producer of consumer goods, like household products and paper goods. S.C. Johnson is headquartered in the state, as well as Diversey Inc. For those interested in the paper industry, there are dozens of paper mills in some parts of Wisconsin. This sector offers a variety of potential careers for those who study at online colleges in Wisconsin, such as in business, human resources, or manufacturing.

The University of Wisconsin system provides online education through University of Wisconsin College Online. You can either take courses to contribute to your degree or earn an Associate of Arts and Science totally online. The online format and convenience of all the UW campuses make taking classes online incredibly easy for anyone trying to work an education in around a busy schedule.

If you're interested in private Wisconsin online colleges and universities, there are several options. Some private schools with traditional campuses have online programs, like Marquette University, which offers online graduate certificates and other courses, or Wisconsin Lutheran College. There are also for-profit colleges that grant degrees from accredited programs. Consider Bryant and Stratton College, Globe University, and Herzing University, or national colleges like University of Phoenix, DeVry University, or ITT Technical Institute.

Many of the institutions of higher education in Wisconsin allow the transfer of credits, but the acceptance of credits is subject to review and cannot be guaranteed. Many of these institutions provide financial aid, but financial aid is only available for those who qualify.
