Congratulations on earning your Six Sigma Black Belt! Now that you are an expert in applying the methodology of Six Sigma and supervising those with White, Yellow, and Green Belts, it is time to supercharge your expertise and broaden your career prospects by adding a master’s degree in Operations Management.
According to Glenn Llopis, contributor at Forbes, “Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand.”
As a Six Sigma Black Belt, you’re skilled at quality control and process improvement, but C-level leadership requires you be a change agent in your organization. This is where a master’s degree comes into play. You learn best-practices in managing people, marketing, finances, and operations on a global scale. You go from understanding how to manage Six Sigma best practices to a leader who understands what it takes to instill operational vision an organization can rally behind.
