The Railway Management Certificate Program (RMCP) at the Michigan State University Eli Broad College of Business is offering two new short seminars for key management issues and opportunities facing the rail industry. Both seminars are to be held on the MSU campus in June.

The first runs June 13-15 and is entitled Railway Talent: Finding, Developing & Retaining Great People. “Executives in many industries, especially transportation, report that one of the things keeping them awake at night is all around talent—getting the right number of qualified, capable, competent people to perform work consistently well at all levels of their organization,”: says Managing Director Nick Little. “This workshop-style seminar will enable rail industry managers and executives to hear some of the latest thinking, strategies and leading practices to address these concerns from leading MSU professors and industry subject matter experts.”

The second runs June 20-22 and is entitled Supply Chain Management: Where Rail Can Make the Difference. “Michigan State University’s Supply Chain Management programs are ranked #1 in North America.” Says Little. “This seminar combines academic frameworks, real-world examples and experience with discussion of leading practices and trends. Our logistics professors’ executive education experience over more than 50 years is combined with subject matter experts from the freight rail industry to provide a unique perspective for shippers, customers and rail operators, including sales and marketing managers.”
