Graduate Certificate in Lean Six Sigma
Lean Six Sigma is a business strategy with a set of tools for organizations to improve capability of their processes. Many organizations now apply Lean Six Sigma methodologies to eliminate waste within their business processes. The CityU Six Sigma program is designed to train professionals who want to gain Lean Six Sigma knowledge and certification.
