The College of Graduate Studies at the Medical University of South Carolina would like to invite you to participate in Accelerate to Industry TM (A2i), a career development program aimed at helping graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in fostering a career in industry. MUSC has been selected by A2i, an NSF-funded initiative first developed at North Carolina State University, as a partner institution to expand the program outside of NSCU. The first module of the program is called Job Search Strategies (JSS), and engages industry representatives (e.g. human resource specialists, management and leadership, research scientists, sales and marketing, etc.) to lead presentations and discussions on topics related to the search for jobs in industry.  Please re-visit this website as it will be updated to reflect changes in the A2i program at MUSC.

Our Mission:

  • Prepare MUSC graduate students, postdocs, and alumni for the wide range of available industry careers
  • Help our graduate students  secure industry jobs
  • Work with NC State University to develop a network of companies and universities to promote the transition of graduate students and postdocs from Academia to Industry.

Information on current JSS agenda for the spring semester 2021 can be found here.

Application.  One must apply to be accepted into the A2i program and up to 25 graduate students and postdocs will be accepted into the JSS program.  One may apply here.  Once an applicant has been accepted into the program she will be contacted through email and directed to the event registration.  To help cover some of the costs of the 5 day (90 minutes per session) program the registrants will be required to pay $35 at the time of registration.
