Business Management students make their mark
03 February 2012
The introduction of the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate to the BA Business Management programme has proven a success for a number of final year students.
Two outstanding students, Kayleigh Jones and Michael Hogan, used their experience and skills in quality and operations management to further their careers.
Kayleigh was one of 2,000 applicants taking part in the recent recruitment drive by EADS Airbus. She has accepted the graduate scheme position and will start in Broughton, Chester in Summer 2012.
Michael successfully applied for the post of Quality Analyst with Barclaycard and has been working part time on various aspects of quality using, among other quality tools, 5S.
Both students were asked at interview about their knowledge of Lean Six Sigma specifically and business operations generally and were able to confidently discuss various aspects of Lean Operations, such as 'Just in Time'.
Jacqueline Douglas, Module Leader for the Lean Six Sigma module and Quality and Operations Management module, said that this was very encouraging and should act as a motivating factor for all students who have chosen to study within the Liverpool Business School.
"I am very proud of both Kayleigh and Michael and will be sorry when they leave the University; their contributions to discussions and activities in class have been so valuable in making the theory come alive. I wish them both every success in their chosen careers."
