Six Sigma Certification

The Whitman School has been offering an online Six Sigma class for more than 10 years. During this timeframe, we have saved companies more than $12 million. In our program, a Master Black Belt works with you throughout the class. This can be taken completely online, and you are required to work on a project for the duration of the class. Optional on-site meetings are held on the Syracuse University campus to help you network and go over issues with the material or your project. Upon completion of the class, you will receive a Six Sigma certificate from the Whitman School.

All classes work at your pace with a master Black Belt assisting you on your Six Sigma journey.
