Manufacturing Management Certificate Program

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is pleased to present this new educational opportunity to the precision manufacturing industry of southwestern Pennsylvania. Precision manufacturing is an engine of economic growth and job creation in southwestern Pennsylvania. However, a shortage of appropriately skilled workers with competencies essential to high-growth industries, along with an aging workforce, combine to create a demand for programs that will increase the number of workers available to serve the manufacturing industry. The existing and future manufacturing workforce needs access to educational programs that will enable them to attain, maintain, or upgrade skills to adapt to changing workforce needs.

The content and the delivery format for Pitt-Greensburg’s Manufacturing Management Certificate Program are designed for working learners with technical training in manufacturing who have been identified by their employers candidates for future leadership roles.

Others who would benefit from this program include military veterans who would like to enhance their skills as well as displaced workers who would like to enter this sector of the workforce.

The content for the program is customized to provide the courses in management and related areas that are most relevant to current work experiences. The program is also designed so that the credits could be applied toward a bachelor’s degree in business management.

A component of the program would require participants who receive tuition reimbursement to agree to stay with their employer for a designated time period or become responsible for repayment of their educational costs. Please see your human resource department for details about your company’s educational benefits.
