    Hello
    everyone,
    I am a graduate student at nirma university and am doing a research on how to apply six sigma in educational institutions.
    I don’t have good concepts on six sigma as i have just started knowing about it. I also am not actually able to know how exactly i should apply six sigma in my research.
    Can anyone guide me in this path??? I will be obliged.Thanking you,
    nikhil

    I will break with the pack and NOT offer to be contacted offline. I will suggest that you do a little search and find out what they are doing at the University of Miami in Coral Gables FL. Try to contact Dr. Howard Gitlow.

    I see many Universities advertise their programs on this site.  If there are willing to teach (at a cost) I’m hoping they are eating their own dog food.  For example – call Ohio State or Villanova and talk to their director of quality (six sigma), let me know, I’m curious.

    Ps – Reading my post, it sounds a little prickish, it was not meant to sound that way.

    Hi Nikhil, first and foremost get an understanding of Six Sigma. Browse the internet and go through generic Six Sigma material. You may think of taking up Six Sigma trainings as well (online or classroom – readily available everywhere as many on this site have alreday recommended you with their contacts). Then find out what are the requirements in educational institutes e.g. content development, scheduling of classes, training effectiveness etc and what is the trend industry wide. You will have to do a rigorous data collection either thorugh secondary sources like internet, published information etc or through surveys with sample institutes. This data will lead you to what and hows of Six Sigma in education institutes. Hope this is useful.. all the best.

    Nikhil,Your original post inquired as the use of SS in educational institutions. It has deteriorated into a pissing contest. You should have two takeaways:
    1. I gave you a specific contact for a University that is applying SS in their institution.
    2. It may be useful to contact some of the major universities that are selling SS training to see if they actually use it internally.Everything else was misleading.

    Why does Villanova have University Alliance Online & Bisk Education Inc on their website?

    Chuckie,
    Villanova essentially out sources the Six Sigma elearning. Bisk education actually does it. It is the American way. You get somebody else to do it and just take a piece of the action. This is essentially just selling the Villanova name.
    You didn’t think someone at Villanova actually cared about Six Sigma did you? This is about money not education. Are you a little naive.
    Guess what? They do more that just Villanova.
