"The availability of evening courses and the flexibility of UW-Stout’s M.S. Risk Control Program allowed me to graduate in a timely manner while continuing to work full time and raise two children. The professors were very supportive and the coursework provided me with the foundation to be successful in implementing risk management strategies focused on reducing people/property losses in the workplace."
- Lance Dockter, HSE Director
"The M.S. Risk Control program is a dynamic and rewarding program where the student covers a board and base range of safety-based program areas. It has a good mixture of classroom lecture and hands-on learning aids. The Risk Control umbrella of total asset protection is a superb model that will serve students well as they perform their role within the business and provide value to the organizations in which they serve."
Stephen Gauger, Petroleum Safety Industry
"The UW Stout Risk Control program utilizes an appropriate mix of technical information which prepares the student to find, read, and interpret regulations as well as several management philosophies so a new professional is prepared to approach safety from a regulatory, best practice, and business perspective. The ability for safety professionals to "bridge the gap" and to be able to speak the language of the front line employees and upper management is invaluable. Those skills are a big part of the Risk Control program."
Jeremy Ralston, U.S. Compliance Corporation
I opted to pursue my graduate degree within the Risk Control program from the University of Wisconsin - Stout as it was one of the few graduate degree programs within the Midwestern region of the United States, and its distinguished and long-standing reputation within the fields of risk management, occupational safety and health, and industrial hygiene. While active as a student within the Risk Control program, I found course scheduling to be flexible for a student who was both working fulltime and raising a family.
