Students in class and on monitor

The Engineering Management Program offers a complete and comprehensive program enabling individuals to earn varying levels of Six Sigma Certification.  Certifications are granted through our industry partner, the ROI Alliance.

The courses associated with each level of Certification have been designed and are taught by faculty with real-world experience in the Quality Sciences.  All courses are available on campus and online, making certification at the Green, Black, or Master Black Belt levels possible wherever you are in the world and whenever your schedule requires.

Will the Green/Black Belt/Master Black Belt training enable me to take a third-party Black Belt certification test?

At this time there is no national consensus on what a Green, Black, or Master Black Belt should know, and as a result there is high variability in the skills people possess who say they are Black Belts. Two organizations have recently put forward certification tests and seek to become recognized as de facto third-party certification bodies. Third party certification is not required in addition to certification received from the Engineering Management Program. Third party certifications are not considered a professional license, although they do offer some degree of standardization. Our Six Sigma training will prepare you for either third party test. In both exams there are some topics in each that we do not cover, since our experience is that Black and Master Black Belts do not perform those functions, or in the case of ASQ’s certification, that the technique is invalid. So if you do want to proceed with third-party certification, we recommend that you reduce your stress by discussing these topics with your instructor and/or by purchasing a study guide from the respective organization.

If I already am certified by another organization as a Green Belt, can I just add the two courses required to become a Black Belt in your program? Or, if I am already certified elsewhere as a Black Belt, will the Engineering Management program accept this certification and allow me to take two additional courses to become a certified Master Black Belt?

There is no national consensus on what a Green, Black, or Master Black Belt should know, and as a result there is high variability in the skills people possess who say they are Green or Black Belts. As a result, and to protect the integrity of our program, we cannot accept outside certification.
