    Description:

    This comprehensive course for the railway industry (operating companies, suppliers and shippers) is designed for employees that show potential for professional growth and increased management capabilities to middle and upper management levels.  Content is predominantly focused on the needs of managers rather than operators or engineers.  The course was developed and evaluated by MSU Railway Management Program staff, working closely with Class I and Class II railroad education and training directors, as well as the AAR, ASL&RRA, and FRA decision makers, and other transportation industry leaders.  Content is regularly updated to include topical items impacting the railway industry.  The program consists of four weeks’ content that covers the breadth of today’s railway industry.  Lecture-style presentations, from distinguished MSU professors and recognized industry subject matter experts, are balanced with field visits to rail and associated sites to help put the conceptual and classroom sessions into practice.
