GBSA Sponsors HSBE Student Leaders for Lean Six Sigma

The H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship’s Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA) recently recognized the efforts of student group leaders by providing funding for 16 of them to complete a Lean Six Sigma course. The course, completed in April 2012, was conducted by The Huizenga Business School’s Hudson Center for Entrepreneurship and Executive Education.

Students were awarded with “Yellow Belts” and included members of the American Marketing Association, Economics & Finance Association, GBSA, Society for Human Resource Management, and Strategic Forum Student Group.

Lean Six Sigma Testimonials from Student Leaders
“GBSA, as the Huizenga Business School Student Government, was delighted to sponsor 16 top student leaders. These leaders are now able to organize a project, understand the process, assess its performance, analyze it, and develop a strategy that potentially reduces cycle time and inventory by 90%, doubles labor productivity, and reduces errors and scrap by 50%.”
Arturo E. Bermudez, President  ׀ Graduate Business Student Association

“The Six Sigma training was an investment in time and money that exceeded my expectations. I was amazed at how much money companies are spending on processes that just frustrate employees and add no value to consumers.”
Andrew Seminari, Membership Chair  ׀ Strategic Forum Student Group

“With increased competition in the job market, employers are looking for candidates who stand out among the rest. The Six Sigma training certification provides a competitive advantage.”
Stephen Buckley, Treasurer  ׀ Economics & Finance Association

“The training totally changed my perception of management, marketing, workers interaction, customer service, product/service quality, manufacturing, and so on. Now I recognize the difference between businesses that ‘look good’ versus ‘being good.’”
Viviany Frank, Public Relations Chair ׀ Strategic Forum Student Group

“The design of the course made for a fun and exciting learning experience. Through the group exercises and simulations I had the opportunity to connect with my peers and other area professionals.”
Tiphanie Rood, Secretary  ׀ Economics & Finance Association

“I gained a better appreciation of how continuous improvement and perfection can be great tools to contribute to my personal success and also in the marketplace.”
Patricia Celleri, Secretary  ׀ Graduate Business Student Association

“Process improvement really is a mindset. I now look for ways to remove waste from my everyday activities. I want to continue my education with the Green Belt.”
Steven Dacres, Public Relations Executive  ׀ Graduate Business Student Association

“I highly recommend this four-day workshop to those who want to achieve the most efficient and profitable solutions possible within their companies.  Anyone can learn from this course how to cut down on inefficiencies and reduce waste, which is the beauty about it.”
-Krystle Khan, President  ׀ Economics & Finance Association
