Accelerate to Industry (A2i)

accelerate to industry

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 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 program's first module is called Job Search Strategies (JSS). It 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 the industry. Re-visit the webpage 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. 

One must apply to be accepted into the A2i program, and up to 25 graduate students and postdocs will be taken into the JSS program. Once an applicant has been accepted into the program, they will be contacted through email and directed to the event registration. The required registration fee for participants is $35 to help cover the costs of the five-day (90 minutes per session) program.
