Graduate Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate

The Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate program is focused on creating a high performance organization through a mindset with continuous improvement at its core. This certificate provides the theory and principles to eliminate waste, reduce variability and continually search for productive solutions in organizations. An equal balance of quantitative and qualitative tools and practices are introduced which are commonly applied by today’s successful organizations.
