Begins on February 4, 2021

The Manufacturing Leadership Institute is a program designed for current and future leaders that occurs monthly from February 4, to June 10, 2021.

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 277 participants through the Manufacturing Leadership Institute (MLI) program since it began. MLI is designed to develop and enhance the leadership 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.
