Gemba Academy, the leading provider of online lean manufacturing, lean enterprise, and six sigma training, is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as the online training partner for Boise State University's new Executive Master of Business Operational Excellence Program.
Boise State University has received approval from the State Board of Education for their Executive Master of Business Operational Excellence (EMBOE). This 12-month program is jointly developed and taught by Kaizen Institute and BSU. The program is designed to help working professionals gain expertise in continuous improvement with an emphasis on kaizen, lean management, six sigma and supporting skills necessary to achieve business excellence in any organization.
What makes this program different is the unique combination of hearing, seeing, doing and reflecting with a community of learners and instructors. The EMBOE candidate will study self-paced online learning modules from the Gemba Academy curriculum, engage in highly interactive 1-week intensive sessions on campus, learn from joint instruction from business professors from Boise State University and seasoned industry experts from Kaizen Institute, join a study mission to Japan, and practice the application of the operational excellence knowledge through project work at a sponsoring organization. All of this over a 12-month period, designed to rapidly elevate the operational excellence capability of the working professional.
The Executive Master of Business Operational Excellence is accredited by the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). The 12-month master's degree program includes four, 1-week-long sessions on campus in Boise, Idaho USA with classes held in the brand new Micron Business and Economics Building. There is one, 1-week-long study mission to Japan and project work assigned on-campus, completed between sessions, and reviewed in class.
At the completion of all course work, study mission to Japan and project work, the candidate will earn a graduate degree as Master of Business Operational Excellence. In addition, project and course work will certify the candidate as a six sigma black belt. Each candidate's Operational Excellence project at the sponsoring organization will be designed to return a multiple of the tuition and associated costs.
