Grand Canyon University Offers Six Sigma MBA

Published: Monday, January 24, 2005 - 23:00

Grand Canyon University will offer an MBA in Six Sigma through its Ken Blanchard College of Business. Classes will be offered at the university campus in Phoenix, as well as online and at training facilities coordinated with major corporations. The college decided to offer the degree after surveying top-level corporate hiring managers, who reported that Six Sigma training is a big benefit to job applicants.

“Now Green Belts and Black Belts—as well as those who want to become immersed in Six Sigma strategies—can support their skills and interests with an MBA degree,” says Kathy Player, Ken Blanchard College of Business dean. “This program will be of tremendous benefit both to established Six Sigma practitioners as well as to the organizations for which they work, because it codifies Six Sigma in a way they can more readily be quantified, tested, evaluated and applied. Our MBA program will ‘demystify’ Six Sigma and open the doors for more people who want to learn about this revolutionary practice in a formal educational setting.”
