Quality Management - Courses, Colleges and Careers

Quality Management

Quality Management is a crucial function in any organization, as it ensures that the organization's products, services and processes are consistent and maintain a desired level of excellence. It consists of four main components, namely, quality planning, quality assurance, quality control, and quality improvement. Not only does this function focus on product or service quality, it also deals with the ways to achieve it. The ISO 9000 standards and Six Sigma methodologies are some of the well-known global benchmarks of quality management.

An MBA in Quality Management teaches students about quality control standards to improve business performance, quality assurance and planning, quality management systems, audit of management systems, among other aspects of business.
