The purpose of this grant is for economic development that will include a region in Washington State that comprises 31 participating counties. Most of these counties lack infrastructure to compete for work which is being off-shored. This Make It In America project is specifically designed to provide the connections, strategic consulting, supply chain identification, and management training to allow manufacturers to increase their competitiveness. The primarily strategy is to train incumbent employees.
Make it in Washington
Here is a “pathway” model that organizes curricula into series of stackable, integrated credentials within international business, supply chain management, logistics, and transportation. This approach gives students the opportunity to move from short-term certificates to associate degrees and, ultimately, to baccalaureate and higher-level studies within their chosen career paths, continually increasing their earning power as they upgrade at every level. Today’s Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees are taking this approach one step further, providing a predictable, efficient path to a bachelor’s degree for students who hold professional-technical associate degrees.
