MSU’s Railway Management Certificate Program was established in 2007 and is the only North American program that covers the breadth and depth of the very complex railway industry from both a conceptual and practical viewpoint. Critical and topical subjects are covered in a classroom setting with interactive discussions and field trips to aid learning. These include railroad facilities, customers, suppliers, associations, and agencies. Group project work applies learning and develops teamwork skills.
