Abstract: This paper presents the results of a recent survey conducted to determine the continuing educational needs assessment of selected firms in the state of Wisconsin and adjoining states. Three hypotheses were formulated and empirically tested. Based on the results of the analyses, there was ample evidence that there exists a strong demand on the part of the firms surveyed for continuing educational offerings, particularly non-credit offerings related to the specific problems facing these firms. The results also indicated that engineering management was the most popular subject among the respondents. The results of this survey present an encouraging outlook for the universities in terms of determining and fulfilling the continuing educational needs of the industry.
