Based on its strong tradition of presenting applications-oriented
programs and services, the John D. Hromi Center for Quality
and Applied Statistics is pleased to announce a new option
to its graduate students that leads to Six Sigma Black Belt
The completion of a Six Sigma Black Belt project is a critical
component of the option. Because an organizational commitment
and involvement is crucial to the success of any Six Sigma
program, students are required to obtain the approval of a
project from their organization’s management as well
as the CQAS faculty. The approval process will include the
development of a project charter outlining the objectives,
expected benefits, team members, champion, scope, and schedule.
Additional courses may be required depending on the academic
program the student pursues. For students in the MS degree
in applied statistics, no additional courses are necessary,
but courses in quality management and statistical process
control need to be included in the electives. Individuals
taking the advanced certificate in statistical quality must
take a course in regression, and those in the advanced certificate
in statistical methods for process and product improvement
will need to add courses in quality management and statistical

options, contact the Chair of Graduate Programs.
