At The Ohio State University, undergraduate and master’s students in degree programs at Fisher College of Business and the College of Engineering are trained to become the leaders and problem solvers of tomorrow in their field — and MoreSteam is part of their journey. Whether it’s Fisher’s one-of-a-kind master’s program for lean leaders or the College of Engineering’s foundational undergraduate courses, MoreSteam is part of the fabric of the operational excellence “ecosystem” at Ohio State in a number of programs:
At the undergraduate level, the college’s Integrated Systems Engineering (ISE) degree program provides students with degrees offering career opportunities in a variety of industries. One ISE track relies heavily on blending faculty members’ industry expertise with MoreSteam technology: the Integrated LeanSigma Certification Program. Featuring a technical elective called "Lean Six Sigma Foundations," this program utilizes MoreSteam Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training, Process Playground™ discrete event simulation software for teaching process modeling, and TRACtion® project tracking software. A companion course, "Lean Sigma Certification," allows faculty and students to collaborate on project work using MoreSteam's TRACtion and Black Belt exam in conjunction with College of Engineering certification.
This certification differentiates a candidate and is in very high demand in business and industry. Of the candidates in this program, 95% have landed full-time positions before graduating, indicating the popularity of this additional work and skill development in the eyes of employers. Disney, Discover, Boeing, UPS, John Deere, Chase, and Accenture are just a small sample of representative companies pursuing candidates with the ISE Degree and the ILSS Certification.
