Most instructors assign a few articles to read prior to the start of class. These articles will be emailed to you about 2 weeks before the first day of class. There is occasionally a small amount of work to do between class days.

To receive Lean Six Sigma Green or Black Belt certification, you will be required to complete a real-world project that will take a considerable amount of time.

Which hotel do you recommend?2018-05-04T14:30:55+00:00

We recommend staying close to campus for your stay. The University of Utah Guest House is rated #1 by travelers on TripAdvisor and is a short walk from our classrooms. You may also take a free university shuttle from the hotel to class. The Salt Lake City Marriott University Park is nearby and has a free on-demand shuttle that can take you to campus.

If you prefer to stay downtown, we recommend Salt Lake City Marriott Downtown at City Creek, The Little America Hotel, or The Grand America Hotel.
