If you work in manufacturing and you’re looking for ways to advance your knowledge and your career, you may want to investigate a new program offered at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg. Launching in January of 2013, Pitt-Greensburg now offers a Manufacturing Management Program.
The program is geared toward working learners who already have technical experience in manufacturing but are interested in greater leadership opportunities in our industry. It may also be a good fit for veterans or displaced workers.
In an effort to minimize time away from work and maximize learning, students will meet one Friday and Saturday a month as part of a cohort and take two classes at a time. Every four months, students will earn between six and seven credits and complete the program in 16 months. Course work includes: professional communication, probability and statistics for business, accounting for managers, management science, operations management, quality control, supply chain management, project management and organizational behavior. Credits can also be applied toward a degree in business management.
The University of Pitt at Greensburg has worked closely with local industry leaders to customize this program to the needs of area manufacturers and our changing industry.
