    I don’t know of an official educational requirement for Six Sigma training.  I wouldn’t put any educational requirements on candidates for Six Sigma green belt training.  For black belt training (and beyond), I expect pretty much any 4-year degree would be sufficient to “qualify”.
    When choosing candidates for any level of Six Sigma training, I’d look for these:

    Need to have some mathematical aptitude.
    Should be computer literate.
    Exhibit leadership potential.
    Demonstrate willingness to work in a team environment.
    Open to change.
    Good communication skills (verbal and written).
    Hope this helps.

    Thank you very much for the reply. What I really meant was, is it necessary that you should have a engineering degree to take the six sigma career path. As in any IT industry, Engineering degree is the basic qualification that most companies require. So my doubt. I come from a commerce background.

    Dinesh –
    It will vary depending on the company. Some compnaies do not require any degree. HornJM’s list of requirements is probably a better list than a degree.
