Graduate Certificate
Lean Six-Sigma

This online certificate program is designed for industrial professionals seeking insight to techniques of Lean Six Sigma systems while preparing for the Lean Certification by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Six Sigma Green Belt Certification and/or Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence Certification from the American Society for Quality (ASQ). The five required courses will integrate with the Industrial Management and Technology Master's Degree programs as an area of specialization.

This program utilizes the same format to present all five courses included in the program of study. Course deliverables and materials will have a complete set of course components, including learning outcomes, instructional modules, handouts, assignments, and assessment. Interactive discussions with peers and course facilitators in a virtual class meeting, video conferencing, discussion board, and telephone conferences are encouraged.
