Undergraduate Certificate in Industrial Leadership

Program Description

Leadership in the manufacturing industry is in a state of transformation, which requires new perspectives and skills to overcome the challenges and to take advantage of available opportunities. This transformation requires a new type of leader with skills and techniques that focus on gaining efficiencies that allow organizations to move forward faster, smarter, and better than before. This leader needs to be flexible and adaptive following a set of principles that drives performance in every level of the industrial organization. Effective industrial leadership uses Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques to gain operational optimization by following a continuous improvement cycle. Today’s industrial leaders need to apply an enhanced set of leadership skills that supplement the long followed, traditional leadership competencies. The courses within the industrial leadership program allow you to develop the enhanced skills necessary to be a strong industrial leader and contribute to the overall success of a manufacturing organization.

As you progress through the industrial leadership program, you will gain experience in applying enhanced skills in a safe environment. Each aspect of industrial leadership examined throughout the program is foundationally based in Lean Six Sigma and prepares you to achieve the status of certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt. That certification opens up a world of career options geared toward optimizing processes and policies and providing steady leadership across industries and modalities.
