Lean Six Sigma Certificate


The University offers an on-line Lean Six Sigma Certificate Program for individuals interested in enhancing their knowledge and skills in the areas of quality and efficiency.

  • Unlike many LSS certificates, this program consists of four credit-bearing courses.
  • Courses meld two compatible methodologies: Lean (which focuses on increasing efficiencies and eliminating waste in the supply chain especially the processing stage) and Six Sigma (which is a quality-focused, problem-solving methodology).
  • This certificate program is well-suited for individuals pursuing professional careers in manufacturing, construction, mechanical design, and many other service and technology industries. Quality is a vital function in every organization. Careers specifically dealing with quality are growing faster than most other careers as organizations seek to improve quality while reducing costs.
  • In addition, the certificate program is preparation (in combination with additional study and required work experience) for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Six Sigma Certification, which further enhances career opportunities. Information on ASQ certification may be found in the ASQ Certification Catalog.
  • The on-line Lean Six Sigma Certificate Program is open to eligible students in the U.S. (including the District of Columbia and all U.S. territories). The program is closed to students residing in countries other than the U.S. except for U.S. military and State Department personnel and their family members with APO/FPO addresses.
