Testimonials

“I took this course during my junior year at FIU and I honestly did not know what I was expecting or how I was going to understand industry-related problems and scenarios. The instructors made the class very interactive and broke down any concepts I may not have understood. After learning the methodology, I realized that this is something I could implement to almost any environment, which can be extremely beneficial even in school projects. I hope to continue future activities that involve Lean Six Sigma.”
