Lean Six Sigma Black Belt International Certification ProgramFrequently Asked Questions

FIU Executive Education offers non-credit certificate programs to allow business professionals to enhance their professional development. Therefore, at the conclusion of our program, you will receive a certificate of completion from FIU Business. Our programs do not award college credits and may not be taken as a part of a current academic program in which you may be enrolled. The registration and payment for our programs are handled directly through our website. Any programs that are taken through our office will not appear on MyFIU, and will therefore, not appear on your transcript. In addition, you will not need to apply through the university as a whole and with an application fee.

Participants in our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt program must have a Lean or Six Sigma Green Belt prior to the start of the Black Belt program. The Green Belt does not need to be from FIU. If you already have a Green Belt issued by FIU Executive Education, we will have a copy of your certificate. If your Green Belt organization or a different unit of FIU, we will request a copy of your Green Belt certificate after you register. Aside from the Green Belt certificate, there are no prerequisites regarding test scores, transcripts and GPA requirements.

No. FIU Executive Education learners are not official FIU students and do not go through the same admissions process as FIU students. FIU Executive Education learners are not awarded a "Panther ID" number or Student ID. Our programs are non-credit, non-degree seeking programs.

International attendees are welcome to enhance their professional development by participating in FIU Executive Education programs. Program modalities are conveniently set to fit the schedules of busy professionals. Programs are typically delivered either live/virtual (cohort) synchronous or fully online (self-paced) asynchronous. We may also offer in-person programs. Please refer to each program’s Delivery Method listed on the program’s home page.

Student Visas: Continuing professional education programs are non-credit and non-degree programs; therefore, they do not qualify for US student visas. To attend in-person programs, international participants usually need tourist visa. When necessary, our office may present an official letter from FIU to confirmed participants which that may be used in support for obtaining a tourist visa.

Should you have additional questions or concerns, please email us at execed@fiu.edu.

Space in the program is provided on a first-come, first-serve basis and is limited to no more than 15 participants. Please note that registrations are not confirmed until fully paid.

Approximately 5 hours outside class time.

To earn the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certificate of completion, participants must complete the program within the allotted course time, complete all assignments and participate in at least 80% of the live online sessions. 

No certificate is provided until the learner meets all the requirements for earning a certificate. If a participant can not complete the program and earn the certificate due to an emergency situation, he or she should discuss the situation with the program coordinator to see if arrangements can be made to help the participant successfully complete the course.
