In keeping with Katz's commitment to experience-based learning,
our Six Sigma Theory and Practice course is designed to benefit students and
industry partners alike. The course equips MBA students not only with strong
theoretical knowledge of the Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge, but also
with practical, hands-on experience with Lean/Six Sigma methodologies through
field work with an industry client.
Below is a partial listing of past Six Sigma clients.
Six Sigma is a disciplined,
data-driven approach to process improvement aimed at the near-elimination of
defects from every product, process, and transaction. Lean topics are incorporated throughout the
course. Six Sigma utilizes the following
five-phase problem solving methodology known by the acronym DMAIC.
To integrate theory and practice, students are grouped into
teams and work under the mentorship of a Six Sigma Black Belt on a real-world
problem for an industry client. Benefits
realized by our industry partners include:
Solutions to problems.
Bright, energetic MBA students who bring new resources and new
perspectives to a project.
An opportunity to find new talent and pre-screen MBA candidates.
A collaborative relationship with the highly regarded faculty of
the Katz Graduate School of Business.
