Are you a university student looking for ways to differentiate yourself in a highly competitive market? As you and your fellow students are aware, you need every advantage you can get as you prepare to enter the job market.

One such edge is a Six Sigma Green Belt or Lean Green Belt certification from IISE, the only IISE endorsed and sanctioned program. We want to help you and your classmates earn that certificate. Speaking of earning, the most recent ASQ salary survey showed that Six Sigma certificate holders earned an average of $16,193 more than their peers! And for those that already have a Lean or Six Sigma certificate, we offer other great certificate courses in topics like Operational Analytics and Leadership.


IISE is pleased to offer seven unique courses designed to support university students:


We deliver courses to IISE Student Chapters in three ways:

  • Live In-Person – On-site and in person using a standard classroom format.
  • Livestream – A live instructor, but delivered via Zoom, Teams, or similar platform.
  • Online On-Demand – Self-paced, asynchronous internet-based training.


For IISE Student Chapters, hosting an IISE course is an important way to bring valuable skills to students at a highly-reduced rate. And, it's a great way to raise funds for your IISE Student Chapter!
