VET² Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Program

The VET²  Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program examines the military to civilian transition hurdle, and it introduces a refined methodology for gathering and processing information. In the program, you will develop an understanding of the statistical tools used in implementing the Six Sigma approach - the Define/Measure/Analyze/Improve/Control (DMAIC) methodology. You will focus on the issues of metrics and their importance in DMAIC projects as you work to develop your own capstone project.

You may elect to complete your Lean Six Sigma capstone during a three-week VET² internship with a new employer; however, an internship is not required for program completion or certification. The selections for internships are solely at the discretion of the employer hosting the internship.

This program combines the academic content introduced in the Georgia Tech’s VET² Plan of Action Development course, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course, Principles of Data Analysis and Decision Making course, and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt course.
