Graduate testimonial

I commenced the Masters Degree in Strategic Quality Management in 2011 having already spent 10 years working with Lean in industry. The course material is very thorough and effectively conveys the Lean philosophy and associated tools. The Six Sigma element of the course is also very well structured and gives the user a solid knowledge base in relation to Sigma tool selection/application, while the lectures provided a great opportunity to meet like-minded people from many different organizations. The support provided by the course staff was excellent and the teaching was very much focused on real-life application, as opposed to just the theory . On a personal level the course challenged me to rethink many of my long-held views in relation to Lean/Sigma, some of these views were reinforced while some others changed significantly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course.  Fergus Fitzpatrick SDip '12, MSc '14, Operations Manager, Luftansa Technik Turbine, Shannon
