Accelerate to Industry

Accelerate to Industry

Accelerate to Industry (A2i) is a workforce development program that allows graduate students to explore diverse career paths with our industry partners in the Charlotte region and beyond.  The program offers a variety of modules that teach students how to transfer the skills they’ve acquired in their degree programs to meet the needs and challenges of industry. From one-day company site visits to semester-long team projects, A2i creates a host of meaningful interactions between sponsor companies and top UNC Charlotte graduate students.

A2i Modules

Industry Immersion

The Industry Immersion is an intensive 3-day symposium in which industry sponsors deliver professional development to a vetted pool of graduate students through workshops, panel discussions, presentations, and networking events. Sponsoring companies benefit from prolonged engagement with potential recruits and the ability to ensure workforce skill readiness in areas critical to their operations such as leadership, teamwork, project management, commercialization, and finance.
