    Dear all,
    I am new to Six Sigma. Currently pursuing MBA and planning to take Accounting and Finance as my specialization. My interest is in Finance. As a fact, I strugguled to decide between Finance and Human Resources as my main objective is to do SIX SIGMA and I was not sure which education background can help in taking up SIX SIGMA. Could you please advise if I can start studying SIX SIGMA after MBA in Finance?
    Thank you.
    Regards,Swetha.

    hi
    doing an mba and doing six sigma don’t have a correlation
    six sigma is a method of statistically analyzing the problem and help management take better decisions
    your choice on specialization can be any, over a period of time you may attend a six sigma training and initiate process improvement projects in whichever field you are in
    hope it helps

    Swetha,
    It depends on what country you reside in. There are countries that have passed laws against pursueing Six Sigma after you have a MBA in Finance. None actually require capital punishment but there are extensive fines that can be accompanied by periods of indentured servitude.
    That was not a serious answer, which I felt compelled to state after reading this question. You get to do whatever you want because (I am assuming since you are pursueing a MBA) you are chronologically an adult. If you want something that will compliment the SS material I would stick with the Finance stuff. If you get feeling a little fluffy and head down the HR path look into OD.
    Just my opinion.
    Good luck.

    It doesn’t really matter.Β  Understanding probability and the tools that go along with it will help – you may or may not ge that in Finance alone.Β  The only other advice is to nto fall into the accounting trap of $-only results.Β  Opportunity loss/gain, percent improvement, customer satisfactionΒ and employee development are all possible improvements for a Sic Sigma effort.Β  If you broaden your improvement agenda to cover these, then whichever field you choose will do well.Β  There is no one-best degree for Six Sigma.Β  We have black belts who have engineering, finance and HR degrees.Β  Green Belts are even more diverse.
