Program Purpose

Purdue University delivers a best-in-class online Lean Six Sigma (LSS) certificate program for students with a range of career objectives and level of familiarity with the discipline.

Six Sigma metrics and methodology continue to be adopted by thousands of organizations globally as a model that can deliver dramatic performance improvement and cost savings.

Many organizations today employ Lean Six Sigma methodologies, which blend Six Sigma’s focus on reducing variation with Lean’s focus on eliminating waste. Purdue created its Online Lean Six Sigma certificate courses to train professionals who seek to satisfy the growing demand for Lean knowledge, skills and certification. Recognizing the value of Lean Six Sigma certification, many companies now require this training not only from their employees, but also from their suppliers.

Lean is a central component of all Purdue online LSS courses. Our emphasis on Lean provides our students with a distinct advantage. Purdue’s online Lean Principles course adds value to the program by giving students a deep dive into Lean practices and the ability to apply Lean tools to current projects.

The Purdue program offers lean six sigma certifications for busy professionals at different stages of their career path. We understand that Lean Six Sigma training is a trajectory and have developed our rigorous university-based program to support you every step of the way. Many of our students take all of our courses, but some courses can be taken on a stand-alone basis.
