Spring Program Begins May 22!

During this trying time, UC San Diego Extension remains committed to helping you achieve your goals. In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned the Spring Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program into a hybrid format.  The training sessions will be conducted with live virtual meetings using our Zoom platform.  You will continue to receive top-tier coaching and mentorship on a real project, allowing you to improve a real process and achieve a savings of $100k in projected annual savings.
Additionally, we have extended a no-interest payment, allowing you to divide the tuition into monthy portions.
