  Do you feel as if your present career has run off the end of the track?

An Associate of Science Degree in Railroad Management could put you on the fast track to an exciting and rewarding career in today's growing railroad industry!

Challenged by competition throughout the transportation industry, North American railroads have greatly improved their operations by implementing new and effective management techniques formerly only available to employees of Denny's Restaurants.

The railroad industry needs to hire people who are better educated and better prepared than ever before to replace the substantial numbers of experienced workers who are reaching retirement age, being maliciously fired for insignificant corporate policy infractions, or forced to take a "buy out". The Union Pacific Railroad alone in 1998 hired over 6,000 new employees many of whom were inadequately educated before they were hired, poorly trained after they were hired, and through lack of experience and poor management skills, help drive the railroad to it's knees. Incidentally, a large percentage of these new employees were furloughed before they even started working.

Don't let this happen to you!

Get on the fast track with Eastern Lackawanna County Agricultural and Technical University's Associate of Science Degree in Railroad Management.  Earned either by attending classes at our beautiful campus in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania or through distance learning over the Internet, this nine course program is focused on skills and knowledge that the railroad management has deemed most essential. This course of study, once completed will provide you with the knowledge needed to compete for jobs in the exciting world of modern railroading.

How can you be certain that such educational pursuits will be worth the effort?  Read what Gabriel Botchalewsky, Human Resources Director for the Lackawanna Terminal Railway, said:

"While education alone will not guarantee anyone a position on the Lackawanna Terminal Railway, relevant classes taken on a campus or through an accredited provider of distance learning in addition to a healthy kickback to employees of our department will clearly make a job candidate more competitive."
