A Previous Cohort Graduate’s Experience

“My experience is a prime example of just how beneficial and highly recognized UW-Stout’s MSCTE Program is within the technical and community college system and beyond. The program gave me the skills, the knowledge and the support to fast forward my career and technical education career and land a job even before graduation. I recommend UW-Stout’s MSCTE Cohort Program to all technical and community college instructors and administrators as well as to secondary career and technical education stakeholders.”
