Courses We Endorse
San Diego State University’s Professional Certificate in Lean Enterprise is a 12-week program that will introduce you to the Lean philosophy by incorporating learning tools that include simulations, exercises, lectures, assignments, and a project. You will gain practical knowledge that can be immediately applied to your work place whether you work in service, transactional activities, or manufacturing processes.
The Lean philosophy is a strategy for achieving significant improvement in performance through elimination of waste in the total business process.
Throughout the program, you will work in project teams applying the Lean concepts to your work place. A unique added value of SDSU’s Lean Enterprise program includes site tours of San Diego companies to see how local companies are applying Lean principles. Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a certificate of completion.
UC San Diego Extension’s Project Management Certificate program is designed to provide in-depth training based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) developed by the Project Management Institute (PMI). What is unique to their program is that it:
- Provides a very practical, hands-on approach to understanding the elements and principles of project management
- Can be completed either in class or completely online
To earn the certificate students must complete six required courses and nine elective units (typically three courses). Classes are offered in the Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall quarter—and you are welcome to begin at any time.
