    Hello everyone. I’m doing a mini research project and I was wondering if anyone knows if there’s a list of colleges and/or universities that provide Six Sigma or Lean Production courses at an undergraduate or graduate level? If so, could you provide me a link to the listings? Thanks in advance.

    Cucuzza, Good morning!
    This looks like an easy, simple question, but it is not.
     
    Virtually any univeristy/college program (at least in the U.S.) for industrial engineering, statistics, or operations management will have some mention in some undergrad and graduate courses related to either Six Sigma or Lean, or both. Also, many MBA programs (especially those focused on operations) will mention Lean and Six Sigma.
     
    If you google these kinds of programs, you will come up with literally hundreds and hundreds of them just in the U.S. — many more in other countries, too.
     
    That does NOT mean they do a good job of it, though.
     
    FYI, at least one university teaches Six Sigma AND actually practices Six Sigma, too, in its own operations — refer to this prior posting:

    I am aware of a couple of schools which offer Lean Six Sigma courses within their curriculum:
    The University of Notre Dame, Mendoza College of Business, offers a Green Belt course within its MBA school.
    The Ohio State University, Fisher School of Business, offers a Black Belt course within its MBA program, and a Green Belt course for undergraduate business students.  I understand that the Engineering school will be adding a Black Belt course at the undergraduate level this fall.
    Cal Poly plans to launch a BB course in the Graduate School of Business this fall.
    Cornell has offered a BB course in the MBA program.  I believe the instructors may be provided by Johnson & Johnson.
    I hope this helps.

    So  can  we  consider  the SS-BB Course as a part  of  the  MBA Program?
    What  about  the  master  certificate  in  SS (GB,Lean & BB)?How  it  can  be  integrated  into  the  University MBB Program?
    thanks  and  regards

    Yes, the courses are offered for credit, within the business school curriculum.  The “Masters Certificate” would be something else entirely, probably on a non-credit basis without enrolling in a degree basis.

    you can add the University of Michigan and Rochester Institute of Technology to the list. They both offer SS classes as part of the engineering education and as stand-alone certifications.

    Great Link
    In  your  opinion is  it due  to  SS or  to  the  wrong  implementation?

    You might try Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas or University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
