This is a very expensive course in the open market and ISME students will benefit from this without paying any extra fees.
The program consists of providing Green belt training and then an on site management consulting project for three months in the area of their specialization at top companies under the guidance of experts, wherein the students will use the management and Six Sigma concepts learned in the classroom for solving real world business problems within their area of specialization. On successful completion of the project they will attend Black Belt program at ISME and become Six Sigma Black Belt certified by ISI (Indian Statistical Institute).
