Organizational Quality Management
The environment in which businesses today compete is rapidly changing and the rate of change is increasing. They are locked in a battle to meet demanding customer expectations while competing successfully to gain market share and to grow revenues and profit.
Individuals who know and work to master the concepts, techniques, and tools of quality know that higher quality can and always does, make a difference.
This program is designed to provide graduates with practical knowledge to be a significant contributor in many areas of quality management. They learn how to integrate quality initiatives in the existing business framework by assessing business processes from a quality perspective and developing quality processes that support day-to-day and strategic business plans.
The program offers a two-part approach to organizational quality management. The first focuses on technical aspects that enable students to use appropriate tools for identifying, analyzing and recommending quality improvement initiatives. The second part teaches how to address quality issues from a business perspective including the business strategy, return on investment and overall cost of quality.
Graduates gain the educational component needed to write the certification exams for a number of professional designations sponsored by the American Society for Quality (ASQ).
