Developed as two separate methodologies, the Lean and Six Sigma principles, tools, and skill sets are now usually applied together for synergy that can take organizations to the next level.

The 15-hour, residential Lean Six Sigma Certificate Program will appear on your transcript upon graduation. Any OHIO student seeking a bachelor’s degree at any OHIO campus is eligible.
