Master of Business Administration — Six Sigma Concentration
The Six Sigma program is a new concentration for the Master of Business Administration that offers highly sought after technical and analytical skills to improve quality of the output of a process in organizations. A collaboration between the College of Business and the College of Engineering and Science, the Six Sigma MBA combines existing courses from each college in a synergistic way to offer a highly desirable graduate degree (MBA) and a highly desirable certificate (Black Belt/Green Belt). The Six Sigma Black Belt certificate represents current, cutting-edge knowledge in industry process improvement.
Combining business coursework from MBA in the College of Business and Six Sigma certificate courses from College of Engineering and Science represents a useful and innovative diversity of knowledge across these two colleges. The MBA helps with the business side of managing a firm or organization, and the Six Sigma coursework helps students make more technical decisions based on an understanding of process improvement through coverage of all aspects of the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) model in accordance with Six Sigma principles.
Courses in the Six Sigma are taught both face-to-face and online, allowing for the flexibility of students to take coursework totally face-to-face, totally online, or in some hybrid form of the two modes.
