Manufacturing Leadership Institute: Strategic Leadership for Growth & Innovation


Begins on February 16, 2017 ($500 discount for registrations before December 1, 2016)

The Manufacturing Leadership Institute is a program designed for current and future leaders. Courses begin monthly on February 16, 2017 and conclude on June 15, 2017

In 2006, Manufacturers Resource Center (MRC) worked in partnership with the Iacocca Institute at Lehigh University to establish a leadership certificate program to educate the region’s current and up-and-coming leaders in all aspects of Strategic Leadership. MRC has graduated over 189 participants through the Manufacturing Leadership Institute (MLI) program since that time. MLI is designed to develop and enhance the skills of our region’s leaders to strengthen their company’s competitiveness, drive growth, and create sustainable business models that lead them into the future.
