Business Process Management Certificate Series

March 5, 2019 - May 10, 2019 | All Day

The James B. Henry Center for Executive Development

Program Overview

With information technology redefining operations in almost every industry, managing the “business process” has become more essential than ever.  BPM is a critical skills set for analysts who redesign the way work is performed and for managers who must assure ongoing performance improvement.

Michigan State University’s Business Process Management Certificate is compatible with the Association of Business Process Management Professionals’ (ABPMP) Comprehensive Body of Knowledge.  Via three classroom modules, it provides tools and techniques you need to transform operations to reduce costs, slash service and/or cycle times, increase capacity and provide a better customer experience.  This certificate series also includes three e-learning modules that deliver traditional process improvement knowledge (Lean, Six Sigma) and cutting edge BPM techniques.
