The Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance is designed to provide students with the knowledge and tools they need to help them understand how to increase process and product performance and to improve the quality and reliability of goods and services in any manufacturing, healthcare, and other service organizations.
Much of the resurgence of U.S. companies and service organizations in the global marketplace has been due to an increased emphasis on quality. Today’s consumers are offered many alternatives to meet their needs, and they have consequently become very discriminating in their purchases. In addition, companies seek to be known as a quality organization, not merely the producer of quality products. The Graduate Certificate in Quality Assurance provides students with the knowledge they need to increase process and product performance, to improve the quality and reliability of goods and services and to institute steps to make their organizations more competitive through an overall commitment to quality.
