“The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate Program through JMU had excellent online learning content and reference tools paired with an instructor that lead great discussions using the curriculum while relating it to his first-hand experiences. The format of this course is well suited for those who want to further their development while continuing to work full-time. The knowledge I have gained in this course has given me a greater ability to make differences that can be seen on a company’s bottom line and is something I will take with me throughout my career.”
