USC launches new advanced manufacturing leadership program
For a very long time, our state has been known as a manufacturing state. And during that time, a lot has happened with technology, enough so that a new segment has emerged known as advanced manufacturing. The recent announcements of several large, new such factories coming to our state has brought to the forefront the need not just for the specialized workforce training but also leadership training specifically tailored to advanced manufacturing. And that’s where our next guest comes in. Mike Switzer interviews Mark Cecchini, associate dean for Executive Education at the University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business in Columbia, host of the South Carolina Manufacturing Leadership Program.
