New London, NH (PRWEB) October 06, 2011
In an article released by the Associated Press on June 8, Stacy Anderson states, “President Barack Obama says the growth of the U.S. economy will depend in part on training new workers for jobs in the manufacturing industry.” (Released through Manufacturing.net /News/2011/06.) Oliver Wight Americas desires to help prepare college students for careers in manufacturing by incorporating both professors and students into this education program. The benefit to professors is to help them prepare students for management positions in industry. The benefit to students is to provide them with a vision of key planning and management processes when they become employed after college. It is also common, in many companies, for an Oliver Wight-trained prospective employee to qualify for a higher entry-level pay status.
Oliver Wight Americas will offer two tuition-free seats in each course taking place in the fall of 2011; one for a full-time professor currently teaching a business management curriculum and one for a student currently enrolled in a similar curriculum. The courses available include Business Excellence, Sales and Operations Planning/Integrated Business Planning, Demand Management, Integrated Supply Chain Management, and Master Scheduling. The Oliver Wight Americas’ website provides detailed descriptions on the business improvement courses along with the dates and locations. Applications for attendance can be filled out on the website.
